Tennessean to shift printing operations to Knoxville, continues investment in Nashville

Tennessean print readers will continue to receive their newspaper without interruption after the transition occurs.

Amid ongoing transformation within the news industry, printing operations at The Tennessean will shift to a regional facility in Knoxville owned by its parent company, officials announced Wednesday. 

The move, timed with The Tennessean’s move next year from its historic location at 1100 Broadway, is targeted to take place in March 2019 and affects about 49 employees at the Gannett Co.-owned plant. It is one of several moves the company is making in Tennessee to fully leverage its facilities across the state, upgrade to modern office spaces and continue to innovate to serve an increasingly digital audience.
“The Tennessean has been printed on Broadway for 80 years so it will certainly mark the end of an era,” said Michael A. Anastasi, Vice President of News for the USA TODAY NETWORK – Tennessee. “But with our impending move, it makes sense to plan a transition now in order to take advantage of our Knoxville plant, which has capacity and state-of-the-art technology.”

The Knoxville facility, opened in 2003, is one of the most modern in the nation, Anastasi said.
