Bakersfield’s hometown newspaper is moving out of its landmark Downtown building according to a story published in The Californian.
The majestic brick three-story building bearing the Californian’s name was commissioned in 1926.
The paper has lived at 1707 Eye St. “since the days of Prohibition.”
Michelle Chantry, CEO, President and CFO of its parent company TBC Media, told the Californian, the paper’s entire operation will move to the Harrell Fritts Publishing Center in an industry park near the airport.
Chantry said the company will lease out the entire Eye Street building.
Phone calls to The Californian from 17 News went unanswered Monday evening.
