The Albany (Ga.) Herald is moving printing and packaging of its paper to the Tallahassee (Fla.) Democrat, effective Oct. 25.

Herald Publisher John Hetzler said the move was necessary to balance revenues against costs.

“We can see no other way to do this other than to fundamentally change our business model,” he told the Herald.

The Herald’s offset press, installed in 1977, was too expensive to upgrade, the Herald said. The paper is one of seven owned by Southern Community Newspapers Inc. The Democrat is owned by Gannett Co. Inc.’s U.S. Community Publishing unit.
