Cedar Rapids Gazette: The Cedar Rapids Gazette will transition nightly printing of its newspaper to Des Moines next month following a decision to cease newspaper printing operations at Color Web Printers in Cedar Rapids. The closure of the newspaper printing operation affects 34 full-time and eight part-time employees of the print facility. The change comes because of increased printing consolidation industrywide and the end of several long-term printing contracts. Printing will be transitioned to Gannett Publishing Services in Des Moines, which publishes the Des Moines Register, the Kansas City Star and other publications.
