First confirmed details of Corporate’s shake-up

The newspaper division executive in charge of circulation is retiring, according to a memo that offers at least one clue about that secret management shuffle in McLean, Va. From the memo Vice President Rob Althaus just sent to publishers and other top bosses:

“It is with sadness but with great zeal and enthusiasm that I tell you that effective 1/2/2009 I will be retiring from Gannett. It has been my pleasure to work with such a terrific group of Gannett professionals for the past 18 years and for that I thank all of you. I have enjoyed every day of being a circulator for the past 37 years and I will miss the hard work, camaraderie and the friendships. However, I sincerely look forward to the next chapter. Best wishes to all and thanks again for all that you have done for me.”
