From Kalapuya lands in the Willamette watershed

Medford Mail Tribune abruptly shuts down

1 min read
News deserts continue to spread as Oregon's fourth-largest metropolitan area---with a population of a quarter million people---loses its Pulitzer-Prize-winning newspaper.

from Steven Saslow, Publisher, Medford Mail Tribune 

It is with heavy hearts that we announce that as of Friday, Jan. 13, 2023, the Mail Tribune has ceased all operations.

This was a difficult business decision; the shuttering of this institution is a real loss for all constituents in Southern Oregon.

Unfortunately, industry-wide reductions, and in some cases complete elimination of national advertising spends for newspapers (digital or printed editions), coupled with rising costs of content and the difficulty of hiring staff and managers have made continuing the Mail Tribune unsustainable.

The last published issue was Friday, Jan. 13, 2023. Refunds due for unused portions of paid subscriptions will be issued within 60 days. We will be reaching out to our advertisers and vendors within the next couple of weeks.
