Patriot-News/PennLive shifting some jobs to New Jersey

(Harrisburg) -- One of the region's largest media companies is shifting some of its operations to New Jersey in what is the latest change to the organization.

PennLive and the Patriot-News say people who design and layout the newspaper will be based out of its parent company's offices in Edison, New Jersey.

The paper is printed three days a week.

In a statement, Editor Cate Barron says 13 positions are affected by the change, but notes several of the jobs could remain in central Pennsylvania.

She says those affected can apply for jobs in New Jersey, and if hired could work remotely.

Barron says Advance Publications, which owns PennLive and the Patriot-News, also has a regional design team that manages both its Alabama and New Orleans newspapers.

In recent months, PennLive has cut back on freelancers who would attend meetings in boroughs and townships, and laid off seven full-time employees.
