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

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.
