Magic Valley Publishing to merge 3 local Kentucky newspapers
The readers of The Hickman Courier, The Hickman County Gazette and Fulton Leader are being informed that their newspapers will soon disappeared, merged into one paper that will be called The Current.
The papers are published by Magic Valley Publishing, a small publishing company headquartered in Camden, Tennessee.
The papers being merged serve communities in southwest Kentucky near or on the Mississippi.
According to WPSD-TV, the decision to merge the papers was made to save costs, though the chains president said that they will hire another sales representative and reporter for the merged paper.
Just give us a chance. Look at the new newspaper, and the content from the other three will be in one,” Magic Valley Publishing President Dennis Richardson said.
None of the papers maintain their own websites – though at least one has its own URL, though it redirects back to the company website, and contains no news online.
