In late January, DFM announced Project Unbolt, meant to reorganize the work flows, staffing structures and cultures of newsrooms for a more digital-centric, less print-oriented approach. Its key features called for increased live reporting, multimedia, interactivity, social-media engagement and mobile emphasis.
Buttry led that effort, launched in pilot programs at metro dailies in New Haven, Conn.; Willoughby, Ohio; El Paso, Texas; and Pittsfield, Mass.
The status of Project Unbolt was unclear after Wednesday’s news.
