Express-Times to cut printing operations

EASTON, Pa. -

The Express-Times of Easton announced Wednesday the elimination of 38 jobs as a result of the newspaper's printing operations being shifted to Staten Island.

The elimination of the newspaper's production department will result in the loss of 12 full-time and 26 part-time jobs, according to the report.

The publication will continue to be "assembled and headquartered" at its Easton building, according to the report.

Lou Stancampiano, The Express-Times' president and publisher, said the newspaper will start being printed on Staten Island on June 3.

Stancampiano said there are no plans to change the daily print schedule from seven days a week, as some other Advance newspapers have done.

The Express-Times also cut about 20 jobs in January.
