An independent journal about the Gannett Co. and the news industry's digital transition
Anonymous said... Gannett will have to sell some properties. Look for clusters that will be ceded. The biggest sale? NJ to Singleton. It'll come fast, and as a surprise, in late Fall. 9/18/2011 7:49 PM Singleton? That sure as hell came out of left field.....More likely that Gannett has been in talks with the Philadelphia Media Network for sometime. Specifically for the properties located within the Philadelhia DMA.Unfortunatley for Gannett. It's stock has plunged (reducing the value of it's "currency"), and said properties have recently gone further south than expected.Those two factors have gummed up the deal over the last six months. Binghamton isn't happy because the Palace is even less so.
"Specifically for the properties located within the Philadelhia DMA."Right - that's why G A N N E T T is pushing and shoving Cherry Hill through the incredibly painful off-site design process it is going through now.
Westchester - Unit 1084 To be sold.
Anyone heard about the iCircular app?

Bingo, 12:58. Crystal Palace's top management and the Board *do not* pay attention to the little people.
And in a break from unsubstantiated gossip, here's something real: Philip Brasher has been hired by the Gannett Washington Bureau to cover agriculture. If you have reported this already, my apologies for the oversight.
3:15-that was kinda boring. Just like rest of usat. Bring on the juicy gossip!!
ROFL. Charles Overby: A Journal of Courage(and soaking up millions from The Big G, Freedom Forum and some for-profit prison system. Even brags about $5 million vanity contribution to Ole Miss.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xpnuXCSl6k
Sorry, i was laughing so hard i typed "journal" instead of "journey." These Freedom Forum/Newseum people have no shame. Rewriting a financial disaster.
Westchester isn't going anywhere. Enough with these clueless, unsubstantiated lies. Come on Jim demand some sort of proof.
Yeah- Enough already! 50 layoffs by the end of the year yes. But closed? Ooops!- Sorry 8:53. Guess I let the cat out of the bag.
9:16 Are you talking about the loss of drivers' jobs?
8:53 - Sure, sure. Westchester is Gannett's biggest money loser. But of course, as you, say, it's not going anywhere. Sounds like the kind of delusional thinking that led to the Journal News' collapse the last 2-3 years.
9:16 here Jim. No. Not drivers. Maybe 8:53 could fill you in on who will be cut. Oh, wait- no proof offered so I must be making it all up. Clock's ticking 8:53...
Sam S has given everything possible to the APP for years. Anybody who doesn't appreciate that is a fool. If his job is impossible now, like a lot of the rest of us, it ain't his fault.
Singleton used to call the Gloucester County (N.J.) Times, which he bought in 1983, his flagship paper, He would use that bull-flattery line at every paper he visited.
Sorry haters but the Journal News is in the black. Hasson is turning things around.
Jim says: "Proceed with caution; this is a free-for-all comment zone. I try to correct or clarify incorrect information. But I can't catch everything. Please keep your posts focused on Gannett and media-related subjects. Note that I occasionally review comments in advance, to reject inappropriate ones. And I ignore hostile posters, and recommend you do, too."
