The State of Tennessee has issued a paper license for the Nashville News and Courier to become the official paper of the state.
The paper’s new license is the result of a yearlong process in which the Nashville Times & Post agreed to serve as the paper’s publisher and also sign a 10-year deal with the Tennessee Bureau of Labor and Industries.
The Times &ing; Post will continue to be known as the Nashville Sun.
The Nashville Sun was started by former newspaper owners Charles and Edythe Taylor, who founded the Nashville newspaper in 1885.
The Tennessee Bureau agreed to acquire the paper in 2017 and was awarded a 30-year contract by the state to run the paper.
The newspaper will be the first official newspaper in the state, but it will have no paper service in Tennessee.
In 2017, the Tennessee Post Office shut down its paper services in Nashville, which is why the Tennessean now serves the paper, and the Tennessee Daily News was founded in Nashville.
The Tennessee bureau of labor and industries said in a statement that the agreement is a “transformative step” toward making the Nashville-based newspaper the state’s paper of record.
The agreement gives the Nashville Daily News a voice and the authority to provide local news, information and information about the state and its citizens, the bureau said.
The Nashville Daily Post will be a newspaper that is not subject to the jurisdiction of any other governmental entity, including the Tennessee Office of the Governor.
The Tennesseans Times &s; Post is a free-standing newspaper, which means the newspaper will remain free from political influence, the statement said.
