“Today, we are revising our overall organizational structure by eliminating approximately 100 department head positions. This new structure flattens our executive management ranks, enhances the role of our group sites and aligns corporate resources with the field as we aggressively pursue our print and digital strategies to deliver what readers and advertisers want.”
That’s what Community Publishing president Robert Dickey today told employees via memo about the latest job cuts at Gannett. He admitted that efforts to manage costs were not successful in light of the decline in revenues. Just last month, Gannett announced it was eliminating 1,000 newspaper jobs.
