The Hartford Courant announced Monday that the newspaper will now be printed in Springfield.

The shift from Hartford will not affect distribution and circulation of the newspaper, which is the nation’s oldest continuously published newspaper and dates to continuous publication. The paper began as a newsweekly on Oct. 29, 1764.

“The Courant remains committed to its mission of telling the stories of the people of Connecticut,” said Andrew Julien, the Courant’s Publisher and Editor-in-Chief. “We are not in any way changing the mission of the paper.”

An undisclosed number of jobs will be eliminated.

The Springfield Republican newspaper will take over printing of the paper by the end of the year.

The Courant is owned by Tribune Publishing, a Chicago-based media company that also publishes the Chicago Tribune, New York Daily News, The Baltimore Sun, the Orlando Sentinel and other daily papers.
