Citizen to keep publishing until at least Friday

Citizen Staff Report

Negotiations continue

The Tucson Citizen will publish at least through March 27, Tucson Newspapers announced late Friday.

The notice was given through a memo from Mike Jameson, president and chief executive of Tucson Newspapers, as required by the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act.

WARN requires employers to give 60 days’ advance notice to employees in the case of mass layoffs or plant closures.

“The sale or closure will not occur before March 27, 2009,” the memo read. “We expect to have more certainty in the very short term, and when we do we will let you know.”

Gannett Co. Inc. announced Tuesday that the Citizen, which was originally set to close Saturday, would remain open on a day-to-day basis during negotiations with potential buyers.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
