Here's where they're going:

1-Explore L.I.

It represents one of the largest infusions of new blood at the storied news outlet. They're already ahead of the curve, having already erected a paywall behind which nearly all their content resides. The New York Times is following suit shortly (after aborting an earlier attempt at it years ago).

The emphasis here seems to be on more local coverage, and more online friendly content.

Newsday is planning a party on February 2 in their offices to welcome all the new hires. So, I'll be loitering in their parking lot that day for more information.
