Gannett tightens top belts

In what appears to be a show of solidarity after calling for a 10 percent reduction in Gannett's workforce, CEO Craig Dubow said he will take a voluntary pay cut and freeze executive salaries. Here's the memo:

Gannett Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Craig Dubow today announced that he will take a voluntary $200,000 (17%) salary reduction beginning November 1 and continuing through 2009. Also, all company and divisional officers will have their salaries frozen for 2009.

"All Gannett employees are making deep sacrifices for their company," said Dubow. "I have great empathy for those employees and their families who have lost their jobs. I also recognize that our employees are working harder and harder to produce results in a challenging business environment. But I firmly believe the steps we are taking now are necessary and will serve as the foundation for our future success. I want to thank all our employees for their patience and loyalty during these difficult times."

Gannett Presiding Director Karen Hastie Williams said: "We commend Craig for his leadership in taking this step. The Board is well aware that the company and the media industry generally are experiencing difficult times. The Board believes that the company's strategic plan has set the right course given the secular and cyclical challenges the company faces. The Board continues to support Craig and his management team and their efforts to lead Gannett into the future."

If $200,000 is 17 percent of his salary, that means he's making $1,176,470.50 a year. So now he'll have to squeeze by on a mere $976,470.50. Wow, what a "deep sacrifice."

This is ridiculous! Nobody deserves that kind if salary...unbelievable!

Sure he deserves that compensation. Look what he has done for the shareholders...whoops!

And, remember, that's before bonus and a host of other perks that would amaze the average worker.
