In a heartfelt letter to readers on August 21, Fred Rutberg, president and publisher of The Berkshire Eagle affirmed the companies commitment to the community and local journalism and announced that The Eagle has bought and will be installing a newer-model Goss Community SSC Magnum newspaper printing press.

The new press will produce a higher-quality look with better color photographs, graphics, and advertisements for their readers.

The Eagle’s current Goss Urbanite press, which has printed more than 30 years of Berkshires Eagles, will be dismantled in September. The new press should be up and running in the fall.
