RE: CHANGE FOR THE FUTURE
DATE: APRIL 24, 2012
We have great expectations and ambitions of transforming the U-T into a multi-platform media organization. Many of you have seen the changes throughout the building with the exciting addition of the television studio and, soon-to-launch, UTTV.
These endeavors have caused some to comment and question what such changes mean to the future of the newspaper. We believe that entering into new markets and attracting different audiences are critical ingredients to ensure success and longevity into the future; it is imperative that we change in order to thrive.
Making changes and attracting new audiences will allow us to re-invest in the newspaper and transition the U-T into a source of news, information, and entertainment that will be welcomed by San Diegans for years to come.

Most Importantly….What’s Not changing
Our business model, our culture, and our content all are changing, but our expectations for the comportment of our employees, are not. We are always courteous and open-minded, accommodating with our customers, and respectful and professional with one another. We strive to set an example as a great workplace that challenges all employees to fulfill their highest potential.
Our hope is that everyone will come onboard, embrace the changes of the new landscape, and be a part of our future. We depend on you!
