Newsday, Growing

Wednesday, August 11, 2010


Newsday, the Long Island daily which has struggled to convince many of its reader to pay for the content now behind a paywall, says it's expanding.

An internal memo sent out today, and pased along to me by a helpful reader, says the Long Island paper will hire 34 journalists in the next six months, and expand their news and opinion pages by 2,600 pages annually.

The focus is to drill down locally and mine -- if it's possible -- more local news out of their catch basin.

They're also, "cross-training staff to enable them to cover news in both text and video."

Technical note: I'll have the memo posted shortly, once I figure out why it's not working on scribd.

While they're at it they can scrap their present website which is the worst anywhere, being difficult to maneuver, skips and jumps and takes too long to turn a page despite being powered by optimum.
