More Defections, AP Cuts Member Fees
Oct 24, 2008, 12:52 PM
In the life of newspaper defections, the AP is cutting member assessments by another $9 million in 2009. It already cut $21 million in fee reductions earlier this year. The move was triggered by Tribune Company's notice that it might cancel AP services in 2010. The Columbus Dispatch also gave notice a week ago, joining the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Spokesman-Review and the Bakersfield Californian.
