Jim Hopkins at Gannett Blog has the memo, of course, from USA Today exec ed Susan Weiss:

For community journalists it means more time to concentrate on local coverage with impact and depth. It also provides the chance for superior local content to be shared across all of Gannett in a powerful new way. For USA Today and the new national desk it means access to the best all of Gannett has to offer on a 24/7 basis.

Jim asks whether this spells “the beginning of the end for Gannett’s use of wires including the Associated Press.” An anonymous commenter says his/her understanding is that AP is safe, but that other wire services (New York Times, Washington Post/Los Angeles Times/McClatchy) are out.
