Newspaper to cut advertising jobs in Connecticut
Posted on January 15, 2012
The New Haven Register said this week it plans on trimming over one hundred jobs and cutting advertising jobs in Connecticut.
The move comes as the newspaper announced its plans to outsource its printing operation to Hartford and move other operations to another office space in New Haven.
The Register will launch a new open newsroom that the public can participate in.
The Register’s new office will be modeled, in part, after the open-to-the-public Newsroom Café in Torrington that was launched by The Register Citizen, a sister publication of the Register.
Publisher Tom Wiley said the Register, along with sister publications including The Register Citizen and The Middletown Press, will be printed in Hartford by the Hartford Courant beginning in February.
“We’re excited to be opening our newsroom to our community,” Wiley said. “We have launched our Community Media Lab and community conversations and this is the next step in serving our community.”
