The Hawick News, in the Scottish Borders, will give up the lease on its office at the end of 2015.
No alternative arrangement has yet been found for the one full-time member of staff and other part-timers presently based at the News’s Towerdykeside headquarters.
News owner Johnston Press has closed a number of offices across the UK in recent years with journalists either working remotely or relocated to bigger sister titles’ offices, sometimes off patch.
A JP spokeswoman said: “We will be closing the Towerdykeside office at the end of December and are currently looking for new premises that better suit the needs of our news team.
“We live in an age when people are more connected than even via online and on mobile and, in fact, our news teams prefer to be out and about in our communities rather than sitting at a desk behind a computer screen or at the end of a phone line.”
JP’s programme of office closures began in a bid to release funds to ensure its remaining offices are “fit for purpose.”
