The Sun-Times Media Group has announced that it is shuttering its Pioneer Press printing plant in Northfield. The closing will result in a loss of 70 jobs and there's no word where the small papers printed at that plant will be printed in the future. The closing comes amidst a growing buzz concerning the STMG's finances and a meeting today with union leaders. Yesterday, The Reader's Michale Miner spoke with Jeremy Halbreich, chairman and interim CEO of the Sun-Times Media Group, who Halbreich told Miner that today's meeting was just another of a series of "periodic updates."
