Crain's Chicago Business ( is reporting that the Sun-Times Media Group ("STMG") will run its suburban newspaper operations from its flagship Chicago Sun-Times headquarters.

Reporters at the roughly 40 suburban Illinois newspapers, including the Evanston Review, (Aurora/Naperville) Beacon-News and Glencoe News, will file their stories remotely to editors at Sun-Times HQ from their various communities. Sun-Times Editor-in-Chief  and former Starship commander Jim Kirk hopes to complete the transfer by the end of the first quarter of 2013.

No word on whether centralizing operations at the Sun-Times River North location will result in staff layoffs, though Kirk indicated that streamlining procedures could create job redundancies.
