8 Feb

From the Daily Camera, Feb. 7, 2012:

Prairie Mountain Publishing Co., the Boulder-based publisher of the Camera, Colorado Daily and Longmont Times-Call, plans to lay off 17 employees in Boulder as it consolidates and outsources some advertising design and production functions, Al Manzi, the Camera’s publisher, said Tuesday.

The majority of the layoffs will occur in Prairie Mountain’s advertising design department, Manzi said.

Fifteen positions will be eliminated as part of a broader initiative by Prairie Mountain’s parent company — Digital First Media, a joint partnership operated by MediaNews Group and the Journal Register Co. — to outsource print and digital advertising design operations to Illinois-based Affinity Express.
