The latest newspaper printing casualties are papers in Raleigh and Durham, N.C. Those McClatchy-owned papers are being outsourced to another printing operation in Fayetteville, N.C. This comes on the heels of the sale of the sprawling newspaper plant that prints The Philadelphia Inquirer, impacting more than 500 workers.
Thirty-four pressmen at the New Hampshire Union Leader will lose their jobs after the newspaper stops printing its own paper in June. The state’s largest newspaper reported this week that it entered into an agreement with Seacoast Media Group to print its paper in Dover.
Publisher Joe McQuaid says the decision was necessary because of the cost of updating and commercializing the press. The move also marks an expansion for Seacoast Media Group, which publishes the Portsmouth Herald.
