It's another bad-news story for the US newspaper industry: newsroom jobs slumped another 10.4 percent to the lowest level since tracking began in 1978.

The annual survey by the American Society of News Editors released Tuesday found newsroom employment dropped to 32,900 in 2014 from 36,700 a year earlier.

The survey highlighted the ongoing hemorrhaging at traditional news organizations as readers turn to online sources of information.

But the results also showed some gains in large-circulation newspapers and some very small ones.

ASNE found the number of employees at newspapers with daily circulations between 250,000 and 500,000 increased by 13.98 percent.

Those with circulations under 5,000 had a 15.9 percent increase in the number of employees.

But the drop was a whopping 21.58 percent among newspapers with circulations between 100,000 and 250,000.

Ken Doctor, a media analyst at the research firm Outsell, said the job losses were notable in a growing economy.

"If we project the recent decline forward, we'll have one-half the number of daily journalists working in 2016 or 2017 as we did 16 years ago," he said in a blog post.

"And this year's loss happened in the best US economy in close than a decade. Daily newspapers have bled people in good times and bad."

Newspaper employment peaked in 2011 at 56,400, according to ASNE.

Doctor said there are only around 10 US dailies with a circulation of about 250,000, and the data suggests they are investing for growth.

ASNE said its census showed 12.76 percent were minorities, down slightly from 13.34 percent a year earlier, and held in the range of 12 to 14 percent over the past decade.
