A telephone survey led a blogger in Oregon to ask:
Is the Oregonian going tabloid?
Why a smaller, easier to hold format is possible is explained in Jack Bog's Blog. In the comments is speculation about the possibility of outsourcing a print job and confirmation of the phone survey.
Other bloggers in Oregon also wrote about the possible shift but all seem to use this post in Jack Bog's Blog as the content source.
Smart move? Or dumb idea to research?
(And, how many of you thought I was going to tell you staff is shrinking again. That's coming - not news of more layoffs, but me catching up with the November buyouts and the February layoffs.)
