Gannett – Why Work For Us?


Gannett Co. Inc. traces its origins to 1906, when founder Frank Gannett and his associates bought a half interest in upstate New York's Elmira Gazette. From that point on, Gannett continued to acquire and oversee multiple local newspapers along the Northeastern United States, and eventually throughout the country. In 1982, Gannett created USA TODAY, a national newspaper that approached content and design in a bold new way.

Early on, Gannett established a policy for local editorial autonomy and championed technological advancement at their media organizations—which expanded to their growing network of radio, television and cable stations. As a known leader in the invention and utilization of technology, Gannett continues to set industry standards with its digital and mobile products.

On August 5, 2014, Gannett announced it was splitting into two separate organizations. The former head of U.S. Community Publishing, Robert Dickey, was named to lead the new Gannett as its president and CEO.

We encourage everyone to be brave, try something new, and have fun while they're doing it. Because following the rules is the opposite of inventive, and we're striving to discover the 'what's next'. We're a collaborative bunch, a performance-based culture, that continually fosters ongoing education and development to keep you inspired. Our goal is to help you create work that you’re proud of, and excel in what we can accomplish together.


Community. It's bigger than a neighborhood or a dot on a map. It's more than the people who share a city or suburb. A community is the fabric that binds us. Whether formed from geography, mutual interest or common causes, communities are where our individual lives intertwine and we become a part of something larger and more meaningful.

At the new Gannett, we exist to make communities stronger. We inform them, equip them, guide them - in part as an award-winning news organization with deep roots in communities across the nation, but also as a modern media company that strives to push the boundaries of what content is, how it's experienced and how it's used.

This commitment requires that we serve communities on all fronts, in some familiar ways and some new ways. We will continue to foster deep and vital connections between the members of our communities and the world around them. We will continue to connect people to content that matters, and businesses to the customers that they want to reach. We not only will give people content that's informative, fun and engaging, but also give them a way to act on that content. And we will provide all members of a community - people, organizations, government, businesses - with the tools they need to thrive.

To do this, we are reshaping our company.

  • One reimagined news organization that stretches from national to local.
  • One technology strategy that puts data and digital at our core.
  • One effort to create new products that reach new markets.
  • One culture, built on the extraordinary talent of our people, far more unified and nimble that ever before.

The Gannett community is stepping boldly into a new chapter, more resourceful, more diverse and more assured than ever. And we will be there for every community in all of the places that matter, focused on the things they care about, who they connect with and how they grow.

Welcome to the new Gannett.
