Citizen to publish at least through May 9

Citizen Staff Writer



The Tucson Citizen will publish at least through May 9.

Kate Marymont, vice president/news for Gannett Co. Inc., told interim editor Jennifer Boice that nothing would happen regarding sale or closure of the Citizen before May 9.

Gannett, which owns the Citizen, announced Jan. 16 that it was putting the assets of the newpaper up for sale and would close the paper March 21 if no buyer was found.

Negotiations with potential buyers went beyond that date and Citizen employees were told they were publishing on a “day to day” basis.

A Justice Department spokeswoman said an investigation of the Citizen’s sale is ongoing, but would not say what the department is investigating.

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
