Look for more consolidation at all the MNI properties in this quarter.
Look for more prices increases at papers that did not increase prices the first six months of 2009 and look for more sections to be combined within sections.
Look for more building consolidation this quarter as newspapers try to bring all their outlying advertising locations closer to the main building.
Look for more creative ways to deliver the product via outsourcing carrier delivery in some fashion and look for more consolidation of rural deliveries from seven days a week to one day a week .
Look for more outsourcing of finance, HR, and IT staff to either local companies or global companies that have contracts with MNI.
Look for more push of online content and websites being tweaked to make it easier to navigate.
Would not be shocked if some of these steps were discussed last month as MNI papers were looking at their 2nd quarter numbers.
