Tampa Bay Times wins contract to distribute USA Today

The Tampa Bay Times will begin distributing USA Today throughout the Tampa Bay area starting in November.

Under a three-year contract awarded by Gannett Co., the Times will distribute about 10,000 copies of the daily print edition of USA Today, which publishes Monday through Friday. The paper will be distributed in Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Hernando counties to more than 1,100 retail outlets and 200 hotels, along with some schools and colleges. It also will be home-delivered.

In a separate deal announced in April, Gannett awarded the Times a three-year contract to print USA Today beginning in August. The Times takes over both contracts from the Tampa Tribune.

"We are proud that USA Today has again turned to the Times to help expand its presence in Tampa Bay," said Joe DeLuca, a Times vice president and Tampa publisher. "Adding distribution to our printing services gives us the opportunity to extend our standard of excellence to USA Today's loyal readers and to play an important role in re-energizing the growth of that audience."

The Times, a 10-time winner of journalism's most prestigious award, the Pulitzer Prize, also has been recognized for its quality printing and reproduction.
