We take no joy in posting an unsubstantiated, but very likely accurate report that our friends at the IDAHO STATESMAN have lost their printer at the IDAHO FREE PRESS.
The troubled Daily Paper farmed out the printing chores to the Nampa paper several years ago. Now word among the few print journalists left in the area has it that the IPT will no longer print the Statesman. Next closest rotary press is at Twin Falls.
TWIN FALLS confirms our story 1/12/18.
That will mean earlier deadlines, less print coverage of late sports, city council meetings, etc. Papers will have to be hauled the 120 miles back to Boise each day–that is the paper remains a daily.
When the latest publisher jumped ship to be a flak for Idaho Power we all wondered about the reasoning behind her move.
A recent circulation notice in the Statesman revealed fewer than half as many subscriptions as they had during the late 60s and early 70s, despite rampant population increases.
