The new publisher of the Utica Observer Dispatch says the deadline for reporters will be pushed back nearly an hour as printing operations will move to Syracuse beginning October 1, 2014.

Terry Cascioli says the current deadline of 10 p.m. is based on the time needed to publish and transport the local papers to area subscribers from Binghamton.

When the process moves to Syracuse, that deadline will be 10:45 p.m., he said.

While that may not seem like a lot, it’s a very significant amount of time considering the time of day. It will allow for subtle additions to the paper that were lost when operations began being farmed out to Binghamton, like sports box scores. It also permits reporters to submit longer articles following local council meetings – which often run late – and extended deadlines for election coverage.

Cascioli joined WIBX First News with Keeler in the Morning to talk about the change, his background and first impressions of the area:
