The change is coordinated with The Tennessean's move in 2019 from its location at 1100 Broadway and affects about 49 employees at the plant.

"The Tennessean has been printed on Broadway for 80 years so it will certainly mark the end of an era,” said Michael A. Anastasi, vice president of news for the USA Today Network - Tennessee. "But with our impending move, it makes sense to plan a transition now in order to take advantage of our Knoxville plant, which has capacity and state-of-the-art technology." The Knoxville facility opened in 2003.

Gannett has also announced the forming of a national team focused on digital optimization and production based in Nashville, to result in about 30 new full-time journalism jobs in the city in the next three months.

Gannett also announced in January the opening of a newspaper regional packaging and distribution center in Nashville. That facility added approximately 35 new full-time positions.
