'Citizen' for Sale, Will Close in March if No Buyer

Posted By on Fri, Jan 16, 2009 at 4:03 PM

The Tucson Citizen is reporting that its days may be numbered:

Gannett Company, Inc., announced Friday that it is putting the Tucson Citizen up for sale and that if no "viable" buyer is found, the paper will cease publication March 21.

The paper has been in publication since 1870.

The announcement was made by Robert J. Dickey, president of Gannett's U.S. Community Publishing division, in the Citizen's newsroom. Dickey said he travelled from Virginia to personally make the announcement.

In a letter to Citizen employees, Dickey said the decision to sell the paper was made because of "dramatic changes in our industry and the difficult economy."
