The Obama Administration denied Corporate's request to completely shutter Arizona's Tucson Citizen. But a settlement announced Friday allows Corporate to strip the afternoon paper of virtually all its editorial employees, replacing them with an online-only publication that appears to be little more than a fig leaf. Gannett and partner Lee Enterprises will continue splitting the roughly $10 million in annual profit produced by their joint operating agreement. Arizona's attorney general intervened, filing a suit to block Gannett, but it's unclear where the case is headed next. Next, in Minnesota, the St. Cloud Times confirmed that it's closing its press, shifting production to a Gannett Offset factory near Minneapolis. Finally, seeking to trim costs once more, the broadcasting division reportedly replaced all its local webmasters with a smaller number of regional employees.
