FT relegates print to 'second' tier role and cuts 35 jobs

Lionel Barber, the editor of The Financial Times, has unveiled the paper's digital first strategy, which will cut 35 jobs and relegate newspapers to second place, as speculation about a sale of the FT continues to circulate.
Barber said the changes were needed to secure the paper's future as "old titles" like the FT were being "routinely disrupted by new entrants such as Google, LinkedIn and Twitter".
