U-T going multimedia

The San Diego Union-Tribune has ousted its Internet manager for reasons that are not completely clear. The paper issued a statement Friday that was carried in Editor & Publisher. See what you make of it:

"[A]s the Union-Tribune continues its transformation from a newspaper company to a multimedia company, it is announcing changes to its organizational structure in order to improve its efficiency and control costs.

"Among the changes, is the consolidation of strategy, product development and Internet sites under the leadership of Mark Davis, currently vice president of strategy. This change results in having to say goodbye to Chris Jennewein, vice president of Internet sites."
