The Salem, Oregon-based Statesman Journal will stop its printing presses next month and start paying the Oregonian to do the work for at least the next four years.

Between 20 and 25 full-time and 30 part-time positions will be cut when the Oregonian begins printing the paper on Oct 14. Statesman Journal publisher Steve Silberman says the layoffs cause “angst and heartbreak,” but adds that it’s a smart financial move for the Gannett newspaper.
