This afternoon, we notified our staff that the difficult decision has been made to close the Kingsville Record and Bishop News. This decision was not made quickly or lightly. As many of you are aware, the newspaper industry faces troubling financial times and an even more uncertain future. We’ve made changes in recent months that we hoped would allow us to adapt, but it has become clear that those changes are not enough.
Our final issue is scheduled for Dec. 5. Over the next couple of weeks we will be contacting our subscribers, advertisers and other partners to discuss the details of our plan to close.
We’ll provide additional information over the next few weeks.
