FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — JULY 24, 2013 —
The West Sacramento Press newspaper will cease publication this month.
The doors will close after about 25 years of weekly operations.
Reached by phone, a Press staffer confirmed the closure but declined further comment. She said the final edition of the Press this Friday would include a statement about the closure.
The Press began as a weekly alternative to the News-Ledger that was initially funded by a group of local businesspeople, and published by Daryl and Betty McCann.
Later, the broadsheet-style paper was purchased by Gibson Publications, a media group from the East Bay. Gibson last year moved the publication date to Fridays.
