Small papers across Colorado face uncertainty as Pueblo press closes

The Denver Gazette: A wave of uncertainty swept through many small Colorado newspapers last week when Gannett Co. Inc. announced plans to shutter the printing presses in Pueblo.

But owners and publishers from many of the papers that rely on The Pueblo Chieftain’s presses say they want to keep delivering a printed product, even though options for those services along the Front Range are limited and prices may rise with the loss of competition. 

“We are up for the challenge. I think we have demonstrated, the Colorado news ecosystem has demonstrated, time and time again we are here for our readers,” said Linda Shapley, publisher of Colorado Community Media. Shapley oversees 25 papers printed in Pueblo, including the JeffCo Transcript, the Littleton Independent and the Arvada Press.
