ROCKFORD (WIFR) – Dozens of Gatehouse Media employees will either have to relocate to Austin Texas or lose their jobs. The parent company for the Rockford Register Star decided to centralize all of its design centers earlier this year. The change does not affect the paper’s news content or the frequency it’s printed it will just be designed somewhere else.
When we first told you about the consolidation in May, 45 people worked at the local facility. Their jobs will be phased out as early as October and by no later than the first of the year.
