An independent journal about the Gannett Co. and the news industry's digital transition
How's it feel to be working the job of three people while getting paid for less than one when compared to other media companies? That's our Gannett.
Word just out that Asbury Park Press moving their headquarters.
My guess would be Cleveland. Local Shmokel!

Old news, scoop. The APP published an article about it after the announcement was made. The old building is a dump in need of serious maintenance and there are vast empty wastelands of the space occupied by former employees. Better to shuck that cost, earn some money from the sale of the highway fronting property and plow it in to the operation. (yes, I am an optimist, although I know it will go to McLean in into the pockets of piggy executives). If we're going to bash GCI, let's not fabricate an issue. Lord knows there is plenty this company does wrong.
For those retirees who get their healthcare from Gannett the new rates for 2014 are on the Gannet Benefit website!
Kevin Manahan left USA Today last month for a better place -- online sports editor of NJ.com, the portal for Advance Publications' New Jersey dailies. He wasted no time in adding reporters to cover the NFL and Rutgers University. Compare that to how Gannett's New Jersey websites are faring.
Kevin who? Never heard of the guy.
Manahan was NFL editor for USA Today and before that a reporter at the (Advance-owned) Newark Star-Ledger. That info was in the linked article.
As a reader of one of the Butterfly sites, I had hoped we might see actual advertising in the paper, not Michael Wolff and Susan Page full page filler. Even if we have to give it away for $2/inch, put some Amish Electric Fireplaces in there.
8:49: I chatted/called. They said they couldn't provide the cost of my premiums until after the enrollment period was over. Not very helpful.
If you go on he Gannett benefits site and go through the enrollment process it will show you new rate!
GPS posted GM job for Phoenix ! min. wage i bet !
2:04 - the new rates are on the site. go to plan options. they are actual lower for retirees next year. I'm confused because they list dental, which I get through COBRA
They are lower because on my plan the deductible was $500 now $1500. So they tripled it!
2:25, there are many errors in your post. The biggest one is: You should say "I'm confused because I spend my days bitching at Gannett Blog."
when did you have a $500 deductible with a Gannett plan? Not in this century.
2:25. Thanks. I'll do some more searching.
Jim, do you watch The Crazy Ones? It seems like your type of show -- an aging douchebag rants incoherently about many different things. He even has an audience of sycophants who kiss his ass -- much like here.
The Crazy Ones is one of the better shows on this season. Robin Williams schtick can get a little tiring but overall it's too good for CBS - it feels like a NBC comedy in the vein of Parks and Rec or 30 Rock.
Maryam loves it.
Is it the Craig Dubrow story? The Bob Dickey Chronicles? Those are your sycophants, 11:03. Now go get your $5 from "daddy"
The larger question is why not.
Will the Purpose Walls get holiday bunting?
The Purpose walls are still searching for a purpose beyond Stupidest Idea of the year. By the way, where is Banikarim's latest On The Road memo?
If I recall correctly, Kevin Manahan was at the Cherry Hill, NJ Gannett owned Courier-Post newspaper. He did good by going to USAToday and then to the Star-Ledger's nj.com website.I wish him well. along with many other former Courier-Post employees - many of whom were donewrong by the C-P.
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."
