Battle Creek: Paper eliminates 50 of 105 jobs

The Battle Creek Enquirer‘s nearly 50% job loss is pacing all all papers in this layoff round. The paper, which Gannett has owned since 1971, is shutting down its printing press and moving all production to its sister paper in Lansing, Mich. “The reduction affects 18 full-time employees and 32 part-time employees, with four of those cuts taking effect immediately and the rest during the next two months,” the paper says today in a story.

The presses go silent Jan. 4. How many communities are even aware that Gannett is shutting down printing presses for the last time?
