What is the future of content at Gannett? And how do our First Amendment responsibilities fit into that? What are our content priorities -- and content strategies? Tune in to discussions about these and other timely issues at Gannett's cross-divisional Content Summit next week. Senior management and top news executives are meeting for three days (Sept. 15-17) at corporate headquarters in McLean, VA, to discuss the company’s content strategy and the launch of ContentOne. You can watch key sessions of the meeting from your desk via livestream video by going to our corporate intranet site at http://gannett.gci.

There will be helpful information including a Q&A and Fact Sheet about ContentOne. You’ll find all of this in a new, permanent intranet feature called “In the Spotlight,” which has been created to provide you with more information about what’s going on across the company. Check out the agenda beginning Monday. Hope you will join us!
