Greg Harabin (background), MAN Roland, watches the signing. The Knoxville News-Sentinel, Knoxville, Tennessee, a unit of Scripps Howard, Inc., placed the order for the new REGIOMAN presses from MAN Roland. The order includes two 70,000 cph four-page-across, one-around, shaftless motor-per-bridge presses last year. They will replace presses installed in 1964 and will significantly expand the newspaper's color and paging capacity while also improving pressroom productivity.
