Sad Tidings from Angel Fire:
Last edition for Chronicle, Comet papers
Posted: Wednesday, May 27, 2015 12:15 pm
Angel Fire’s Sangre de Cristo Chronicle and The Raton Comet ceased weekly print publication Wednesday (May 27).
The Taos News is the parent company of the publications, having purchased them from Guy and Marcia Wood in 2006.
Robin Martin, owner of The Taos News and The Santa Fe New Mexican, said it was not an easy decision.
"After months of careful deliberation, we are closing the newspapers in Angel Fire and Raton because print advertising revenue could not support a weekly newspaper in either community. Our management team in Taos is exploring ways to serve the Moreno Valley with print magazines and an online presence,” she said.
The Chronicle’s website will continue atsangrechronicle.com
Martin said today's newspaper environment has changed. "By ending print publication in the Moreno Valley, we will be able to devote our energies to The Santa Fe New Mexican and The Taos News, both in print and online, which continue to be award-winning and profitable properties," she said.
"I am as saddened as our readers to see these small print publications go," said Martin.
Chronicle subscribers have the option of receiving The Taos News for their subscription term, or receiving a refund by emailing email@example.com or calling (575) 758-2241.
