Tupelo newspaper revs up new multi-million-dollar press

The Monday edition of the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal was the first to come off a new printing press.

Clay Foster, chairman/CEO of Journal Inc. and publisher of the Daily Journal, says the paper worked for months to prepare the new multimillion-dollar, 160-feet-long printing press for its first full run on Sunday night.

Foster says more photos in the paper will now be in color, as well as the daily comics and other graphics. He says advertisers will have more options for color ads as well.

He says the page size has been reduced by an inch in width and 1 1/4 inch in depth. He says the reduction in page size will reduce the Journal’s newsprint expense.

The new press will produce all publications of Journal Inc., including the Mississippi Business Journal.
