Talk:Utah County Newspapers

Over the last ten years the Provo Daily Herald has purchased and absorbed all local commuity weekly newpapers and after a few years discontinued them. See Provo Daily Herald articles 5 Feb 2009 and 26 Jan 2011. Captkdavis 01:12, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Some of this was simple consolidation, the rest was from the changes in the industry brought on by the Internet itself.  Many papers were shuttered due to the economy as well, but in the case of Utah County this was more from cost-cutting plus consolidation.  The Herald owned them for many years before that however, probably going back for some time, probably into the early 1990s as probably the most recent purchase dates for these papers.


I thought the above was actually informative content and so copied it to Utah County Newspapers page. Now that the Utah Wiki Project has a Newspapers template running on every county page, the flow between Utah County, Utah/#Newspapers and the Utah County Newspapers page is.....well, not smooth. However, I like the content on the Utah County Newspapers page and feel that other counties will also eventually want to expand to specific newspaper pages. The Utah Wiki Project and the wiki community just need to brainstorm transition ideas and perhaps stub organization ideas that could be used not only for Utah County Newspaper page, but also other county Newspaper pages.
