Denton Publications has served as the commercial printer for all Eagle newspapers since April and had been printing Spotlight Newspapers since 2007. With the change in ownership, Eagle Newspapers will achieve additional production and purchasing efficiencies. The bottom line is readers and advertisers will reap the benefits generated by the synergies of the new partnership.
"In the current economic landscape, it makes tremendous sense to develop close relationships between organizations like Eagle, Spotlight and Denton," McIntyre said. "Spotlight will maintain editorial and advertising independence here in the Capital District while improving our technological infrastructure through Denton. It's simply the best thing to do for the communities we serve."
Community Media Group LLC will continue to use the trade names Spotlight Newspapers and Eagle Newspapers and readers can expect the same commitment to community journalism they have become accustomed to over the years.
"This should be an easy transition for our readers, advertisers and employees," McIntyre said. "Our staff includes some of the best community journalists in New York state. This new arrangement will only enhance what we can do."
