Gannett’s The Desert Sun in Palm Springs will move its printing operations in September to another Gannett press facility in Phoenix, Executive Editor Julie Makinen told readers July 22.

The paper had been printed at its Gene Autry Trail headquarters in Palm Springs since 1989.

“I personally will miss wandering back to ‘the factory,’ smelling the ink, and watching a stream of newspapers cascade down a conveyor belt to the mailroom floor,” Makinen wrote. “It is a magical sight.”
