Yet Another Bad News Day For Newspapers

A whole pile of stories came out this morning regarding the continuing demise of the daily newspaper industry:

1) Local online ad revenue for newspaper sites is growing, but not as fast as it is for pure-play local sites. As a result, newspapers are still losing market share.

2) Gannett cuts 55 positions at 4 New Jersey newspapers

3) Washington Post reporter Stephen Fehr articluates his thoughts after leaving the newspaper following a long career with one of the nation’s last great newspapers

4) Bob Wyman has written a post about how the newspapers lost their classified advertising franchise

Thanks to Gunnar at 1Raindrop for the heads-up on 2 of these.
