TORONTO - Rogers Communications Inc. (TSX:RCI.B) has cut 10 positions in its publishing division.

Rogers spokesman Suneel Khanna said the changes are about strategically positioning the company and streamlining operations.

"The changes impact a wide cross-section of the business: business and professional, consumer, advertising, circulation and editorial," Khanna said.

"We expect that about 75 per cent of these positions will be replaced. Unfortunately, the skill sets of those impacted do not line-up with the long-term trajectory of the business."

The Rogers publishing division publishes a variety of Canadian magazines including Maclean's, Canadian Living and Canadian Business.

The parent company employs more than 29,000 people and is Canada's largest cable TV services provider and mobile phone company.
