USA Today will put more emphasis on its digital operations and less focus on its print edition as part of an overhaul that includes the elimination of 130 jobs.

USA Today Publisher David Hunke told The Associated Press that the job cuts would come this fall, but he didn't specify which departments would be affected.

Hunke said USA Today's newsroom management would be consolidated and the the paper would place additional focus on how news can be distributed to smart phone and mobile device users.

The restructuring included the appointment of several new managers, including Rudd Davis, who was named vice president of business development. Davis founded a sports website, BNQT.com, which Gannett purchased in 2007.
