The Tulsa World and The Oklahoman (click here) announced a partnership Wednesday in which the Oklahoma City media company’s printing and packaging operations will be moved to Tulsa.
The announcement means an additional 27 full-time jobs and 56 part-time positions will be added to the Tulsa World’s operations, said Bill Masterson, president and publisher of Tulsa World Media Co.
“I’m extremely excited about this partnership with The Oklahoman,” said Masterson, who also is vice president of the South Region for BH Media Group, which purchased the Tulsa World in 2013. “The Oklahoman is where I started my career. I have an affinity for it and am excited to be working with them.”
The World will begin some printing of The Oklahoman, including comics and advertising inserts, in September. In early October, the World will begin printing all of The Oklahoman’s products seven days a week....
