Gannett burying Indy.com

Dateline: Wed 08 Oct 2008

First the Star launched INTake, with some fanfare and vision, then it went to Indy.com, a much more watered down and less intense version of a youth-oriented publication, geared to the online readers.

The latest word on the street is that Gannett will now use the national service Metromix to provide calendar/restaurant/event info for Indianapolis and readers of the paper.

As for Indy.com, it's destined to morph into a social networking site. How dated and quaint.

Trust Gannett: if there is a formula for ruining newspapers and careers, they have it mastered.

Also, this info bears out a rumor that was circulating a few weeks ago. Anybody else want to weigh in?

Here's the metromix link:

Read it and weep....
