Capital-Journal prepares to shut down presses

On Monday, the presses will stop rolling at the Topeka Capital-Journal’s printing plant, as the Kansas City’s Star’s plant will start producing the C-J.

C-J publisher Gregg Ireland called it bittersweet, acknowledging 34 jobs will be lost. But readers, the paper writes, will benefit.

C-J readers will receive a printed product that exceeds anything produced in the paper’s 133-year history. Immediate changes will be subtle but significant: Each day’s edition will feature more color pages and greatly enhanced reproduction, offering better options for advertisers and consumers of news and information content. Look no further than Page 5A, where the weather report now will run daily in full color, for an example of such improvement.
