What a crummy piece of news…

Parent corporation Calista is closing and liquidating  their Alaska Newpapers, Inc subsidiary.  

While I understand the business decision, I am sad that these newspapers will no longer be available for news of rural Alaska within their  communities and for the rest of the state.

I hope the staff finds well paying, decent jobs and am very much hoping we will see some of those bylines in other Alaskan publications.

I will miss you ANI

  1. Very nice to see you posting on your blog.
    However, this is not good news, and I am so very sorry

  2. Yup, it is too bad that the rural newspapers are shutting down. It’s a bad time to be without a job out here in Rural Alaska especially with the high prices of everything it takes to live comfortably.
