Newspapers in Vermont and Alabama have announced plans to downsize, as Gannett continues shrinking its physical plants to reflect smaller workforces. Details:
- The Montgomery Advertiser has hired a broker to sell its downtown building; the production plant isn't part of the deal, however.
- The Burlington Free Press plans to sell seven of 12 buildings it owns downtown, but plans to remain as a tenant. They total about 55,700 square feet, but the paper’s newsroom and business operations now require only about 10,000 square feet.
