The Courier Journal will be printed remotely with the closing of its downtown presses


The Courier Journal’s printing and packaging facility in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, will close permanently in March, its parent company announced Wednesday.

Production operations, including printing of the 151-year-old newspaper, will be split between facilities in Indianapolis and Knoxville, Tennessee, according to officials with Gannett, which owns The Courier Journal as well as the USA TODAY Network with more than 260 newsrooms.

The closure of the facility will result in the loss of 102 jobs. The affected employees work in the pressroom, mailroom and transportation at The Courier Journal’s building at Sixth and Broadway.
