'Chico News & Review' Will Halt Print Edition And Exist Solely Online

Print erosion continues among small local newspapers. Chico News & Review (CN&R), a publication that serves Butte County, California, will publish its last print issue on Jan. 11, 2020 and will now exist solely as a digital publication.

Jason Cassidy, editor, CN&R, announced the news “with a heavy heart.”

Cassidy wrote“For the past three-and-a-half years, the newspaper has persevered, publishing monthly with the hope that ad sales would bounce back post-COVID pandemic. Unfortunately, they haven’t, and we find ourselves at a crossroads.”

Looking forward, CN&R will persist in its mission online, where it will “channel our resources toward enhancing coverage of local government and continuing as the go-to resource for local arts information,” Casssidy adds.

Cassidy invites readers to donate to the CN&R “as we endeavor to keep community journalism alive.”

The publication does not appear to have a paywall.
