Dallas Morning News parent contracts with Gannett to produce print, digital ads
A. H. Belo Corporation, parent of The Dallas Morning News, announced plans Friday to outsource much of its advertising creation and production work to the parent of USA Today.
The deal with Gannett Co. marks the expansion of an existing relationship between the two media properties and will result in the layoff of 45 workers. The employees, who work in advertising, accounting and finance, and personnel, were notified last week.
About a dozen employees will remain until early October, said Grant Moise, executive vice president of A. H. Belo and and general manager of The News.
