(KADN) - The Daily Advertiser building on Bertrand Drive near Cajun Field is up for sale for 6.5 million dollars.
The Gannett-owned newspaper has been in the 98-thousand square foot building for nearly 20 years after moving from its long-time location on Jefferson Street downtown.

We reached out to The Advertiser for comment about where staff might end up but haven't heard back. The Advertiser building is one of several across the country owned by Gannett that have been sold in recent years as the media company downsizes.

The Advertiser was  the dominant newspaper for Lafayette, but laid off most of its staff a decade ago as parent company Gannett struggled with a changing 21st-century media landscape.
