Taking a page from MediaNews
The Times Community Newspapers are revamping and from the memo (here via TellZell) it looks like they'll be following the lead of the MediaNews Group papers - which means consolidating copy desks and management, sharing more content, and, well, trying to do more with less. Here's the key passage:
All editorial functions need to be reviewed across all of TCN. While reporters and their beats are local, copy editing and design can be, to varying degrees, optimized across the whole empire. Tony Dodero and Danette Goulet will jointly determine how all TCN editorial resources can be optimized across the entire organization.
