The Seattle Times aims to sell its printing-press property in Bothell, the paper reported.

Starting sometime in the first six months of 2020, the paper will be printed at the company’s Rotary Offset Press in Kent.

The paper is selling the print property to fund news operations, it said.

The facility, which was opened in 1992, prints The Times, USA Today and local papers for China Daily.

The 23.5-acre facility has the press and three parking lots and usually employs around 150, the paper said.

Some jobs will be lost in the move, said Seattle Times president Alan Fisco. The number of job losses is not yet known, he said, the paper reported. Some Bothell employees will have an option to move to the Kent facility.
