Just when it seemed that Wicked Local couldn’t possibly become, um, less local, comes word that Newton TAB sports editor Scott Souza was part of the latest round of layoffs at  parent company GateHouse Media.

Souza’s and other layoffs are expected to mark the end of local sports reporting in Newton, Waltham, Watertown and other communities where such coverage had long been one of the most-read sections of the publication and website.

Souza was able to bring historical perspective to his local coverage because he’d been covering high school sports for 22 years and for the last 14, covering the Celtics for GateHouse too.
