Silver City Newspaper Reopens

Apr 30, 2014

SILVER CITY, N.M. (AP) — A day after the Silver City Daily Press was set to close, the newspaper announced it will continue operations under new ownership.

An announcement on the newspaper's website Tuesday says the family-owned Silver City Daily Press Publishing Co., which Friday announced plans to print its last edition on Monday, has agreed to sell the paper to a company headed by former Daily Press General Manager Nickolas Siebel.

Seibel financed the purchase in large part through small loans from community members who shared his love for the Press.

He says the majority of the previous staff has agreed to join the new operation, which will continue publishing in print and online five days a week.
