Fired Sale

     The Birmingham News and The Press Register in Mobile are following in the footsteps of The Montgomery Advertiser and selling their new buildings. Because they "no longer fit the character" of the company operations.
     The decision comes after the company's owners, Advance Publications, laid off hundreds of employees and cut publication to three days a week. They'll keep the parts of the complexes that hold their massive presses.
     Both buildings are relatively new.  The Birmingham News cut the ribbon on their new building in 2006, calling it a "building for the future". The Press Register opened its new building in 2004.
