The deadline for News Sentinel Person of the Year nominations is today. The qualification is "their actions must have had an impact this year."

I nominate Maribel Perez Wadsworth, the President of USA TODAY NETWORK for Gannett. She's had a tremendous impact on Knoxville by destroying its once great local newspaper of record.

In her previous posts at Gannett, she "led digital strategy for local newsrooms" and "architected the digital subscription strategy."

How's that working out for Gannett and the News Sentinel?

She recently told employees during a company-wide conference call that "digital revenue is not replacing declining print revenues, and some belt-tightening will be coming in the new year." By belt-tightening, she means more layoffs and gutting of newsrooms.
