Newspaper Moving Printing Operations

Posted: Updated:

The Evansville Courier & Press has announced plans to move printing operations from Evansville to Louisville. The publication reports employees were informed Wednesday that the move, which will take effect March 26, could leave up to 48 production employees out of work.

The newspaper says the move includes all printing-related work for the Courier & PressThe Gleaner in Henderson, Kentucky and the weekly Advocate in Union County, Kentucky. The move will not effect employees in news, sales or circulation.

"Our business continues to undergo transformation, and consolidating our printing operations across the region makes strategic business sense," said Patricia Miller, president of Gannett Indiana, which owns the newspapers. "This move will allow us to reinvest to better serve the Evansville and Henderson communities. The Courier & Press and its predecessors have served Evansville for more than 170 years. We remain committed to the depth of newsgathering that can only be done locally, in Evansville and Henderson, and to the strong relationships we have with advertisers in this community."

The publication says reports the affected employees, which include 37 full-time and 11 part-time workers, could lose their jobs on March 31. They will have the opportunity to apply for positions in Louisville and other Gannett facilities.
