Exclusive: Indy to Go to Seven Day OperationStandard and Indy to Merge Newsrooms

BREAKING FIRST ON MEDIA GUIDO:

A memo has just gone out to Indy and Standard staff:

  • The Indy and Sunday editorial will be completely merged.
  • The Sindy editor John Mullin is a goner.
  • The Standard and Independent to move to the same floor.
  • A TV studio will be built in the shared newsroom.
  • Chris Blackhurst in charge of 7-day operation.
  • Redundancies expected. The Standard is making money, the Indy isn’t.

Developing…

UPDATE:

Standard staff are jittery. One source tells Guido:

“The Standard’s staff – editorial, commercial and management – have turned things around against all expectations in the last few years and don’t want to lose their jobs to save the hugely loss-making Indy. There’s excitement about the TV stuff, but no one really knows what it will mean.”
