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.
