In an effort to adapt to new technology or something, the Chattanooga Times Free press announced it has eliminated 35 positions. Included in the layoffs was the newspapers printing press, which was just purchased in 2014.
Sources it may take months for the printing press to vacate the building, as the people who would take it apart were laid off as well.
“We just knew the future was in physical media and that’s why we invested $6.4 million into a new paper press just three years ago,” explained Times Free Press representative Stephen Scotts, while moving his personal belongings into a cardboard box.
“Hopefully the press can find work elsewhere, like printing property available signs for John Wise or physical copies of the Chattanooga Bystander.”
