Citizen’s fate uncertain; paper to publish day-to-day

Citizen Staff Writer



The uncertainty surrounding the Citizen’s future will continue a while longer.

The newspaper will continue day-to-day operation as negotiations for a potential sale continue, Kate Marymont, vice president/news at Gannett Co. Inc., told Citizen Interim Publisher Jennifer Boice on Friday.

Gannett announced in January it would close the Citizen on March 21 if no buyer came forward.

On March 17, the company announced that the paper would continue day-to-day because potential buyers had shown interest.

Two weeks ago, the company said the Citizen would remain open until at least May 9.

“Negotiations are continuing (with prospective buyers) and the full gamut of outcomes still is possible – from closure to sale,” Boice told the Citizen staff Friday.

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
