Another on the move

Gary DiSanto, vice president of circulation, has put his house up for sale. (Link to Clermont County Auditor's site, to confirm his address.) He joins publisher Margaret Buchanan, whose Indian Hill abode remains for sale.

Wonder what they think of the power of a datacenter that puts two and two together.

How many people lost their jobs as a result of the recent consolidation of circulation’s call center outside of Cincinnati?

And, once the Post is gone, it's hard to believe that DiSanto will need the number of people that he has now. So, how many more will have to go?

Good points; but with the loss of Post circulation, won't Enquirer ad rates be affected too?

The company's budget for 2008 would have to factor that in for all expenses. Would any cuts in circulation workers/expenses be enough? Would the newsroom be asked to cut even further?

The Post circulation is mostly done by independent carriers who purchased their routes and work them as thier own business. See this link from the Post concerning Post carriers: http://news.cincypost.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070720/BIZ/707200366

Can't help but to think that the carriers that don't want to comment are holding out hope that the Enquirer will pick them up as employees. That would take time for a position to open as the Enquirer has those routes covered.

Ad rates will not be reduced even though in some cases (Kentucky) there will be a loss of circulation. Ensuring no drop in revenue had to be one of the first things done once the announcement was made that Gannett wouldn't renew 2 years ago. They are no dummies when it comes to revenue.

Also sure that legal and monitary obligations to the Post carriers was analyzed as well at that time. DiSantos comments that Scripps announcement was a surprise couldn't not have been true.

Hard to believe that DiSanto will only now take a look at it especially since Buchanan has been holding meetings about what to do for more than a year now.

"'We only just heard the news like everyone else that there isn't going to be a Post,' Buchanan said."

If she believes in Santa, it would imply that that a Christmas bonus is in works. NOT!

When a company is going down the tubes, vice presidents get to be unaffordable luxuries. That includes vice presidents of content and audience development. They could hire four real workers by getting rid of that job.
