And not just because they're laying off more people. Dan Kennedy reports that in addition to shrinking the staff, again, GateHouse New England has decided it no longer likes the word "reporter." He quotes from a muckymuck's memo:
Accompanying our reorg will be new job titles (and descriptions!) that better describe the role of a multimedia journalist or editor in 2016. For instance, reporters use a burgeoning bag of tools to create multi-layered multimedia stories. Although “reporter” is tried and true, it’s important to signal our dramatic shift in newsgathering, both to our internal and external audiences. Please see your EIC - soon to be known as a Regional Director of News & Operations - for additional details.
EIC is, of course, "editor in chief," so looks like no role at GateHouse for Perry White or J. Jonah Jameson, either.
