Several posters have reported that Gannett's newspapers are expected to publish a new series about the job market through the spring. It's the latest production of ContentOne, the former Gannett News Service now run by ex-Corporate publicist Tara Connell.
A reader has provided a link to a webpage that appears destined for The Des Moines Register's site. "It's surprisingly simple; you take take the basic URL, then type in the newspaper name after the "=" sign to get each paper's version."
At a glance, the series looks an awful lot like a promotional vehicle for CareerBuilder, the GCI-owned jobs site based in Chicago. It's part of GCI's portfolio of digital companies. What I don't see is any disclosure that CareerBuilder has a business relationship with GCI newspapers.
My questions: What form will this take in print? What sort of content are local newspapers producing? What's the role of any TV stations?
