Two newspaper groups to consolidate copy/pagination desks 2/13/19

Two Georgia newspaper groups are consolidating their copy/pagination desks to become more efficient, streamline processes and improve their products.

Times-Journal, Inc., in Marietta and Southern Community Newspapers, Inc., in Lawrenceville earlier this month announced plans to consolidate their copy desk and pagination staffs.

The process began as each company transitions to the Town News Total CMS (Content Management System).
