Salem newspaper to be printed by Oregonian; 50 jobs being cut

SALEM, OR (AP) -

Beginning Oct. 14, The Statesman Journal will be printed by The Oregonian.

The Portland-based Oregonian will print the Salem newspaper and its related publications under a four-year contract.

Statesman Journal Publisher Steve Silberman said Monday that the move will enable his paper to close its printing press. He says between 20 and 25 full-time positions and about 30 part-time jobs will be cut. No cuts will come from the newsroom.

In a story published in the Statesman Journal, Silberman declined to comment on how much money the move would save.
