Indianapolis asks news staff
to write advertorial copy

I remember reading something about this issue, framed mainly as a question of whether Indianapolis management would insist on union support for the "Information Center" model. But I guess I wasn't paying close enough attention to realize a central issue was management's desire to assign news staffers to write advertising copy.

Here's a story from the Indianapolis Business Journal, flagged for me by an alert staffer in Charlotte.

Anybody know what's happening at other Gannett papers?

  1. Feedback from colleague has concerned receiving very short notice and deadlines (three weeks just before Thanksgiving) to come up with a plan to turn their operations into "Information Centers."
