“As we evaluate our real estate needs, our commitment to serving the community, our readers and advertisers has not changed,” Gannett said in the emailed statement.



It sounds like it may be going fully remote?

Gannett owns other local newspapers: Anderson Independent Mail, Asheville Citizen-Times, Hendersonville Times-News, Spartanburg Herald-Journal.

Regional newsrooms or remote are the logical alternatives.

Greenville News is doing everything they can to provide as little local involvement as possible. The goal is to have one newspaper for everywhere that they can copy/paste/resell with a different local name on the top.



I tried to change my credit card paying the Greenville News and the auto generated emails come from another Gannett newspaper in Maryland. They don't even bother to change the name when they copy/paste from their last location.

There is a stall in restroom that we can rent them. Should allow them to fit right in.

I never understood the new building at all.

I mean for as long as I can remember.. 20-25 years or so all I heard was that newspapers are dying. Greenville News is going broke along with every other newspaper in the country, Hard times for the newspaper industry.... And on and on.

Then next thing you know, they demolished their building there on main street and built a big shiny new one lol.

The Greenville News did not build the new one. It was part of the new development and they were simply leasing from the developer.

Sad to see the continued decline of the daily newspaper. The newspaper publishing and printing site was historically a major landmark building in downtowns across America. Now they have been demolished and moved to the suburbs, if they exist at all. And the Greenville News is now deliverd in the mail, and the Sunday paper printed on Friday and sold on Saturday as a "weekend edition." And no more Atlanta paper sold in the Upstate, and the Charlotte Observer sold only on Sunday. And as mentioned, Anderson, Greenville, and Spartanburg papers now all owned by Gannet with virtually identical content, with just different banners at the top of the front page.

Yes, the P&C keeps me informed about Greenville, Columbia and Myrtle Beach with their regional offices.

Herald-Journal in Spartanburg is now. Of course, their building was not in good shape. I've been told they'd come in on a Monday to find that ceiling tiles had fallen onto their desks.
