On the AJC’s last official day in its Marietta Street office in downtown Atlanta, the New York Times gives it a little ink-love.
When The Atlanta Journal-Constitution moves into its new home next week, its employees will have access to free parking, more natural light and a wide variety of “retail, service and dining options” at Perimeter Mall, according to a memorandum from the newspaper’s publisher, Michael Joseph.
What The Atlanta Journal-Constitution will not have is a home in Atlanta.
A move out of Atlanta by the city’s only major newspaper raises an interesting larger question about the present media landscape: In a 21st century world of virtually free and easy communication, how important is office location?
