I'm not sure about newspapers but I'm pretty sure that one of our local magazines had a Compugraphic phototypesetter and operator* before 1980 or so, and I was seriously considering purchasing one at about the same time. That plan fell through because a) it was way more money that I could afford and b) a year or two later I got a computer, went to a user's group, met a guy who'd interfaced the same model computer to his typesetter and was willing to experiment with receiving jobs over the modem. So by '82 or so, I was doing my own keyboarding and coding and sending it out over the wire.

Interesting info here, btw:

* Her name was Ann Fogel. She later married a guy named Rob Fogel, so of course she became Ann Bifogel.
