(Updated at 12:17 p.m.) The number of Gannett presses headed for the junkyard now totals 12, a sharp-eyed reader says, pointing to a site I'd missed in my previous tally: The News Leader of Staunton, Va.
From an earlier version of this post: Confirming speculation, St. Cloud Times Publisher Bill Albrecht sought to reassure the Minnesota community that only production is shifting to Gannett Offset, 51 miles away in suburban Minneapolis.
"I want make (to) sure everyone understands that Times Media and the St. Cloud Times are not moving to Maple Grove,'' the paper quotes Albrecht saying, in a new story online. "Our printed products are going to be produced at a Gannett location in Maple Grove. We will maintain our operation in St. Cloud with roughly 170 employees.”
St. Cloud becomes the 12th site to shutter its press in the past 18 months. The others: Asheville, N.C.; Battle Creek, Mich.; Clarksville, Tenn.; Fort Collins, Colo., Hattiesburg, Miss.; Iowa City, Iowa; Mountain Home, Ark.; Poughkeepsie, N.Y.; Richmond, Ind.; Staunton, Va., and Stevens Point, Wis.
