With power out, Seattle papers use News Tribune’s presses

Published: December 16th, 2006 01:00 AM

Today’s editions of The Seattle Times were published on The News Tribune’s presses.

The Tacoma newspaper agreed to run 220,000 copies of The Times under an agreement that calls for the publications to cooperate in times of crisis, said Cathy Brewis, director of marketing for The News Tribune.

The News Tribune also printed 125,000 copies of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer’s preprinted real estate section.

The Associated Press reported that power outages caused by the windstorm stopped the presses for both Seattle’s daily newspapers, preventing the publishing of the P-I for the first time in 70 years. Only 13,000 copies of the Times made it to the streets Friday after the paper’s Bothell printing plant lost electricity. Both papers are printed at the same factory.

Another printing plant, a subsidiary of The Times, published today’s P-I and The Times’ preprinted sections.
