Sonoma West Publishers Plans Big Changes for 2020 – December 31, 2019

Newspapers are shuttering their doors across the nation, but local publishing company Sonoma West has a plan to keep its newspapers afloat. 

2019 was a big news year for Sonoma County, with historic flooding along the Russian River, rolling PG&E blackouts, and another catastrophic fire season.  In the midst of reporting on these crises, Sonoma West Publishers, which runs four local newspapers, was also working on finding a new model that would help keep its papers afloat. KRCB’s Adia White talked with publisher Rollie Atkinson about the year in review and an exciting new announcement to come in 2020.

Atkinson says we can expect a big announcement on the changes at Sonoma West sometime in the next few weeks. Visit to stay up to date.
