the newspaper group has sent a correction:
In your “The New Gannett Unified Comics Pages” post, you note all USA TODAY NETWORK publications will carry the “exact same comics” which is inaccurate [emphasis added].
We are unifying our print comics package, but our comics may still vary by market. The majority of our publications will maintain a similar number of comics after the transition.
In addition, your post states the transition will be effective Oct. 2, which is also not correct [emphasis added]. While many of our publications will make the transition in October, others will be transitioning in January or later.
Kindly update your post to reflect these changes. In addition, sharing a statement from Kristin Roberts, Chief Content Officer, Gannett in the event you’d like to include in your post:
“Our mission to provide essential journalism in the communities we serve means we are always evolving our content to ensure we are relevant. Refreshing our comics provides a consistent and modern presentation for our audience while incorporating beloved favorites they love.”
I apologize for misinterpreting that the Memphis Commercial Appeal change would be applied company-wide.
may will not affect be the same in all of their newspapers and will not be implemented on October 2 for all papers.
