An independent journal about the Gannett Co. and the news industry's digital transition
I see the local Gannett paper is having trouble filling positions again. The lousy part about this is it ran fine before GPS made a decision at the National level to change the way it operated. They Rif'd the people that got the job done and tried to replace them with fewer people under a new job title. Now they can't get those people back do to a change in job requirements. Local control is gone and Evan Ray and his team don't care. I don't know how much longer the paper can survive this way. I give it another year maybe three years tops.Happy fourth to everybody who reads or contributes to this blog.
Intra-Gannett family squabble from Cincinnati to Phoenix going on. Why can't you report both emotion and facts simultaneously? They don't have to be mutually exclusive.
Have earnings higher than $0, and then we might listen to what you have to say.
Is there somewhere we can read specifics on this?
Jim, What does this post mean? What's the squabble about? This is so vague.
I probably shouldn't have posted that comment because its based on a Facebook news feed that's probably not meant to be widely publicized. Sorry about that.
Does Phoenix want its "storytellers" back? Or did Phoenix have more buyouts accepted? Most of those "old-timers" ought to be finishing their tour of duty next Friday. Good luck to the rest of us . . .
Are there buyouts in Phoenix? Tell us about it.
Come and gone. Application deadline was many weeks ago, and the acceptance was last month. Last day of work for some of those will be end of pay period next Friday.Distribution center consolidation continues. Managers and carriers moving. At 3:18am it's still over 90 degrees in Phoenix. You haven't lived 'til you've been in a DC with over one hundred hot, sweaty carriers (and DC employees!) in the middle of summer.And the restrooms . . . you don't wanna know . . .
There must be a lot of this happening and no one is reporting it here. If it is happening at one site you can bet your ass it's happening elsewhere.Jim had a post last week about Des Moines and the fact that in 2008 they had 1000 employees and that number is now down to 500.Except for the first 100 that were laid off, the remaining cut backs were done very quietly.
Last trade $25.55 and climbing…who said they don't know what they're doing at the top? Can't wait until my stock gets back to $90 a share.
You will wait ... forever
I like it when Jim has to filter comments, as he's now done for most of the last 7-10 days.It keeps the venters and ranters from being able to see their angry posts right away. That makes me happy, thinking of them steaming at their keyboards.Keep it up, Jim.
Your words might carry some weight if Jim's donation total were to show a total higher than zero. I don't like some of the comments posted but I think the filter creates a barrier to conversation.
I would heartily agree with 6:24 p.m. that filters can be a barrier to conversation -- if this blog attracted only reasonable people who exchanged useful information about the goings on at Gannett. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen here. I am happy to have a break from the drivel posted by the haters, ranters and blowhards.
GCI $26.06!!!!! FA e book $24.37��
GOOG $893.49!!! GCI $26.06
GCI market cap 5.96B, NWSA market cap 36.25B, FB market cap 58.92B,GRPN market cap 6.03B, GOOG market cap 296.43B.
$26.06 is fine - if bought before you were born. It's shit - if Daddy bought it $80 (which he did). Thank him - and Wellsley!Love what he did with your basement!Love,Gracia
Oh snap! Is that all you've got?
It only took 2 billion spent in broadcast cash purchase to make the stock go up $1.50,yes, I would be cheering too. That is, if you in print, have another job lined up.
Call me when it gets back to 90. Meanwhile, I will continue to stalk Trillium Golf Club, waiting for Craig Dubow to tee off so I can snap a picture and ruin his insurance claims the way he ruined so many careers. Gracia is far from perfect but compared to Dubow she's Bill Gates and Steve Jobs combined. He ruined this company -- and lives.
Take your company-issued iPhone and shoot a video instead.More damning.
Craig Dubow raped this company through his greed and flat out stupidity and then was allowed to walk away with millions. He should be in jail, not on the golf course.
Is Dubow receiving LTD payment from Gannett? If so, how much?
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."
