What's going on at The Daily Advertiser?

The Daily Advertiser's parent company, McLean, Va.-based Gannett Co., has been cutting staff and content from the local paper for years. Read this week's cover story, Chain Reaction, for more on what's driving the downsizing at what had been one of the major newspaper chain's most profitable papers.

In other newspaper news yesterday, The Advocate reported that it's cutting back circulation in outlying areas. Citing rising expenses, the Baton Rouge-based paper, which has an Acadiana Bureau, is ending delivery in some distant parts of its distribution area, though an online version of the paper will remain available to those readers.
