Gannett, IndyStar announce $2 million investment to grow local reporting and sales staffs


Gannett executives and leaders at the Indianapolis Star on Tuesday announced a multimillion-dollar effort to bolster the Star’s operations and grow its staff.

The plan includes investments that will support both the newsroom and LocaliQ, Gannett’s Indianapolis sales and advertising team.
