We are also hearing rumblings that no news will come from the Star this week and it may be another one to two weeks before there’s an announcement. It would appear that the cuts there were planning was not as enough to as they thought. The selling staff is in crisis mode to see as much as possible to make the numbers.We may have been led down a path that’s bigger than we thought when McClatchy said they were going to cut between 100 to 110 million in additional cost cutting. That number could be as high as 125 million now...And from Lexington:
I also heard a rumor today at the Lexington Herald-Leader that it would be 2 more weeks before an announcement is made. Anywhere other than the Star-Telegram hearing this all of a sudden too? Last week everyone was saying it would be before the end of Feb - now we're talking middle of MARCH?? Just keeps getting better and better. I used to think our publisher was a great guy. Now I just resent him for drag this out w/o out giving us any kind of timeline. Other publishers have said more since the original announcement - why aren't they all giving us an ETA on D-Day?
