N&O sending production work to Charlotte

June 7, 2011 

The News & Observer is transferring newsroom production work to a new center in Charlotte.

Beginning in August, the new center will perform copy editing and page design for The N&O and its community newspapers, as well as The Charlotte Observer and The Herald of Rock Hill, S.C., which also are owned by The McClatchy Co.

About 25 N&O positions are being moved to the center, which will be housed in the Observer's building in Charlotte. The papers' computer servers and much of the technical support staff are in Charlotte.

All N&O copy editors and designers will have the opportunity to relocate to the new center.

"Given the new economic realities of our industry, we must find more efficient ways to deliver the very best products to our readers and advertisers, and we are confident the new center will be an important part of our future," said Orage Quarles III, publisher of The N&O.

News & Observer is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
