Not an unusual arrangement ...

Sun-Times Media, Chicago Tribune enter into print production contract

Read it all here.

The Chicago Tribune will begin printing the Chicago Sun-Times and seven of its suburban sister newspapers under an agreement announced Tuesday.

Jeremy Halbreich, chairman of Sun-Times Media LLC, said the deal will save the company more than $10 million a year and allow investment in editorial content and advertising sales. But the agreement is born of grim economic trends in the newspaper business and will cost about 400 workers their jobs.
