Veteran Bristol Press reporter Steve Collins reports on his blog:
I don’t have any firsthand information yet, but I understand that unless the Journal Register Co. sells The Bristol Press and The New Britain Herald by Jan. 12, it will close both papers.
That means that the guy who thinks I’m a jerk who should be fired will essentially get his wish.
Sad news for Steve and his wife, who also works for the paper.
What I am wondering is whether this is just not an attractive property for a holding company to own, or is it (and the sister publication New Britain Herald) in fact unprofitable?
