Consolidation moves up north
MediaNews is taking steps to consolidate management at some of its Northern California newspapers - which could be a sign of newsroom consolidation to come. The publisher of the Chico Enterprise-Record and Oroville Mercury-Register lost his job today, as did the publisher of the Times-Herald in Vallejo. The former will be replaced by the publisher of the Reporter in Vacaville and the Woodland Daily Democrat, and the latter will be replaced by the publisher of MediaNews' Northern Community Newspapers.
