Prescott Daily Courier To Temporarily Cease Saturday, Monday Printings

Prescott Daily Courier

The Prescott Daily Courier is cutting back on its print editions because of a lack of financial resources brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.

Prescott Newspapers, Inc. announced this week it will temporarily halt publishing of The Daily Courier on Saturdays and Mondays.

Publisher Kit Atwell says the newspaper is dealing with a “drastic shortfall” thanks to a drop in advertising from local businesses, which are also struggling.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey issued a “stay at home” order on March 30 to help stop the spread of COVID-19. The order remains in effect until at least April 30th and many people are working from home or have been laid off during the crisis.

The change in publishing at the Prescott Courier will take effect Saturday and next Monday until further notice.
