Journal Employees Found Out About Merger on Social Media

When word came down that Scripps was merging with Journal, it was shocking to many people.

What was more shocking, the staff at many Journal stations found out about it through social media and phone calls from friends working at at Scripps stations.

Journal managers told the staff that they were caught off guard and the announcement wasn't supposed to be made until yesterday morning. But, when word leaked out, the news was put out early, but no one told the staff at the Journal stations. 

Yesterday on a conference call, Journal management apologized for leaving the staff in the dark and they called the miscommunication a "glitch."

Ya think?

You have to love how people in the communications business don't have a clue as to how to communicate.
