Daily Times Will Have More Layoffs In Early 2015

Today I sat in the Dentist Office where today's paper sat in a bin. I thought, I wonder why no one has read it yet, then I opened it and completely understood. 

Gone is the local news, investigative reporting and quite frankly if it wasn't for Letters to the Editor or local elected officials feeding them with information, that paper would be nothing but ads and associated press, (copy and paste) articles.

Its no wonder they will be having more layoffs. Sunday advertising inserts and Obituaries are about all that is keeping them afloat. 

So if you are one of the sales people being laid off, call me and we'll hopefully work something out.

Gannett has just run it into the ground. When I moved here it was a pretty fair regional paper. Thompson was not such a good steward either but Gannett has been the worst.

It is true the internet and other technologies came along but a good management would have used local resources and reporting to run counter to those sources.

Shame, shame, shame!

Meanwhile the newspapers in Easton and certain other towns seem to be doing fine. It must be those Gannett gurus. And don't forget that Greg Bassett did a lot to sink their ship.

Sounds like Salisbury is the town of layoffs, downsizing and no jobs. Thank a democrat.

At least the DT has lasted longer than their former headquarter building in Downtown Salisbury -- but it probably won't outlive that place by very long.

The fat lady is warming up and will soon be on stage at Gannett, which will decide to cut its losses.
