More Media Consolidation?
The guys over at MediaWatch also read Derrick Gingery's piece on the N-S's fall in circulation (wonder how they found it...), and it's prompted them to make some bold predictions:
Derrick Gingery’s piece in Fort Wayne Business Weekly [5/22} containing the circulation figures for The JOURNAL GAZETTE and The NEWS-SENTINEL is a harbinger to an announcement that the two dailies will merge their Saturday/Sunday editions (a real cost-cutting move) before 2005 ends.
And next year (2006) both papers will operate as one newspaper under the aegis of Knight Ridder.
