    The Sun-Times fired its entire staff of photographers Thursday. Nesita Kwan reports on what that could mean for how the newspaper tells stories.

    The paper said it is focused on bolstering reporting with video and multimedia efforts and must restructure accordingly.

    "The Chicago Sun-Times continues to evolve with our digitally savvy customers, and as a result, we have had to restructure the way we manage multimedia, including photography, across the network."

    The photographers reportedly received the news during a meeting Thursday morning.
