The Observer-Dispatch Deathwatch

Gatehouse Media closed at a feeble 63 cents today, and it's fallen even further in after hours trading. As always, you can follow the action at Google Finance

In addition, the company will be holding a conference call before the market opens tomorrow morning. CNNMoney has the details:

GateHouse Media, Inc. (NYSE: GHS) announced today that it plans to release its second quarter 2008 financial results before the market opens on Friday, August 8, 2008. The Company has scheduled a conference call to discuss the financial results on Friday, August 8, 2008, at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time. The conference call can be accessed by dialing (877) 545-1409 (from within the U.S.) or (719) 325-4910 (from outside of the U.S.) ten minutes prior to the scheduled start and referencing the "GateHouse Media Second Quarter Earnings Call."

A webcast of the conference call will be available to the public on a listen-only basis at Please allow extra time prior to the call to visit the site and download the necessary software required to listen to the internet broadcast. A replay of the webcast will be available for three months following the call.

Still not a peep from any of the local Gatehouse newspapers, which strikes me as being particularly ironic. Traditional print newspapers are dying exactly because people can find content online that they can't get in their local paper.
