Prairie Mountain,  publisher of the Boulder Daily Camera and Longmont Times-Call, is largely dumping production and advertising design slots. Their function will be outsourced to Elgin, Ill.-based Affinity Express, which has operations in the Philippines and India, according to the  Journal article. MediaNews Group's managing company, Digital First Media, plans to increase outsourcing.

Two Prairie Mountain production employees were let go, as part of a consolidation by MediaNews Group at the Denver Post, which the entity also publishes.
