Announced: Oct. 27, 2011
Design and copy editing for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Austin American-Statesman, Dayton Daily News and Palm Beach Post will be consolidated in Florida and Ohio. The wire desk for the four papers will be consolidated in Atlanta. “Over the past year, we asked our four major newspapers to identify best practices and opportunities to consolidate business functions — without compromising the investigative and in-depth news our audiences demand,” a statement from Cox Media Group said. The statement said these changes will be made over the next 18 months.

Correction: A previous version neglected to point out that design and copy editing would be consolidated to two papers: The Palm Beach Post and the Dayton Daily News. This post has been corrected. (11.04.11)
