Newspapers across the country are struggling and the Star-News is no exception.

The paper’s publisher Bob Gruber announced Friday that the Star-News will stop printing its own paper by this summer.

Gruber said that means more than thirty employees in the mail and press rooms could lose their jobs.

The Star-News isn’t the only paper to rely on the 39 year-old press; there are several smaller publications that also use it.

Mike Leggett with the Local News Review has to start looking for another printer. “When you depend on a larger corporation and what their decisions are, it’s a trickle-down effect so we have to go with the flow and change with the times and that’s what we’re looking to do.”

Leggett has a few months to find another printer. He’d like to stay local, but has talked to printers as far away as Ohio.

There is no word yet on where the Star-News will be printed come early summer.
