[edit] Buyout

The Register-Mail, formerly owned by Copley, was purchased by GateHouse Media, Inc., the company that owns The Paper and the Peoria Journal-Star, April 11, 2007. This is a strong blow to Galesburg free media, as GateHouse has a strong history of gutting paper staffs and overworking their printing presses. It also removes what competition there might have been between The Paper and the Register-Mail.

[edit] Publisher steps down

Don Cooper has stepped down as publisher of The Register-Mail, reportedly surprising staff with the announcement.

[edit] New Web site

They have a snazzy new Web site, but for some reason they moved to Galesburg.com. Register-Mail.com was a great domain name. I mean, who uses hyphens in a URL? That was awesome.

The new Web site is easier on the eyes, and they are going to focus more on multimedia, especially video.

[edit] Archive

The new site seems to have lost the online archive that they had going. This will make citations on The Wiki Fire difficult until they get it back up.
