Gannett Watch:

The Courier-Journal launched a new version of its website Tuesday. It’s built on the template Gannett is using now for several of its daily newspapers, including the Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, Miss. The redesigned site was accompanied on the same day by some slight design changes to the print edition, likely in anticipation of the general resizing of the newspaper, which should come in the next week or so.This kind of resizing — well, shrinking — is a trend in the business that Gannett is adopting at the printing facility at Sixth and Broadway. That’s also where LEO is printed, so you can expect a resized version of the city’s only alt-weekly next time you pick it up, too.
