Dean Singleton, CEO of MediaNews, visited the Los Angeles Daily News on Friday. Except for anonymous conjecture in the comments section for this post, I've heard nothing concrete about what he said or proposed or ordered, if anything.
LA Observed referenced some newsroom scuttlebutt about publishing the Daily News on fewer days. There's the universal copy desk concept still looming, with LANG's Inland Division merging copy desks as early as this month and the remaining three papers following in April.
Whether further cuts or more profound changes are required might depend a great deal on the outcomes of union negotiations with the newsroom guilds in Denver and San Jose, the fate of the Rocky Mountain News, and the financial health of Hearst.
