KC Star to print USA Today

The Kansas City Star will print area editions of USA Today, The Star announced today. The arrangement will include the Gannett paper’s Sports Weekly tabloid.

“We are proud to partner with USA TODAY to produce their work on our state-of-the-art presses,” Mi-Ai Parrish, The Star’s president and publisher said in a statement. “The Kansas City Star’s Press Pavilion is a leader in regional printing, producing more newspapers daily than any other in the area.”

USA Today is currently printed at the Lawrence Journal-World’s plant, but it is closing in January, and The Star will print the paper from its downtown production facility. Last January, USA Today moved a significant portion of its printing from Lawrence to Des Moines.
