Newspaper publisher Gannett ( GCI) plans to cut between1,000 to 2,000 jobs as revenue declines continue, a report says.

Gannett, which is reeling like other newspaper companies as advertisers hold back on spending, will trim jobs from its U.S. Community Publishing division, which is made up of Gannett's more than 80 local dailies, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing a person familiar with the company's thinking.

The job cuts, which are expected to be disclosed in the next few days, won't affect USA Today, the nation's top-seling newspaper.

Ad revenue at USA Today fell 34% in the first quarter from a year earlier.

Gannett cut about 10% of its work force last year, the Journal notes. It will report second-quarter earnings in mid-July.
