Eureka Reporter shuts down

Free daily Eureka Reporter, published in Humbolt County (California) will print its last edition on Saturday November 8. The paper was launched in 2005 as a free daily – although it started as a weekly in 2003.

Two days a week, Wednesdays and Sundays, pages of the Eureka Reporter will be published in its rival paid daily newspaper, the Times-Standard. The paper reported a circulation of around 25,000. (Editors Weblog)

The news release:

Times have been difficult for the newspaper industry nationally and many fine papers have had to close their doors. It is difficult for a small community like Eureka to support more than one daily newspaper.

The Eureka Reporter has been served by an outstanding cast from top to bottom. Unfortunately, as is always the case when a newspaper closes, most of the talented staff of the paper will not be retained.
