The Advocate publisher: "We will look for ways to increase our presence in the New Orleans area"

The Advocate, which, so far as we know, will continue to be a daily newspaper serving Baton Rouge, has released a statement about the massacre over at The Times-Picayune (the St. Gregory VII Day Eve Massacre? May 24 is apparently one of very few days without its own saint). You can read the whole thing here, but I'd like to highlight the following paragraph:

At the same time, we will look for ways to increase our presence in the New Orleans area and be ready to take advantage of any opportunities that might come along.

It will be interesting to find out what that means, if anything.

Does The Advocate plan to expand farther into Greater New Orleans or, maybe, is its publisher anticipating cuts to the T-P's coverage of the capital (and the Capitol)? Perhaps a content-sharing agreement like the one Tennessee's four largest newspapers put together in 2009? I like The Advocate — I read The Advocate often — but I hope that's not what's going to happen.
