The Lakeland Ledger classified collections department will soon get busier. The New York Times Company announced today they’re consolidating much of its regional classified advertising billing and collection work to the Ledger site.
Serphos said the centralization, expected to be completed by April 1, will direct most classified ad billing and collection efforts to a central office in Lakeland, Fla., where the chain’s Lakeland Ledger is located. The change will affect all of the company’s daily papers, except The New York Times, International Herald Tribune, Boston Globe, and Worcester (Mass.) Telegram & Gazette. — Editor & Publisher
