CHICO, Calif. – A well-known publication for the city of Chico is preparing to make a return to print for the first time since March.
Chico News & Review will return to print with a special edition, staff announced Monday. Staff members said its been nearly three-and-a-half months since Butte County’s independent weekly has been in physical circulation.
The loss of advertisers in the wake of the coronavirus shut-downs forced all three News & Review offices in Chico, Sacramento, and Reno, to temporarily cut print publication as of March 19.
The Chico News & Review pushed to continue reporting on the community with minimal staff and resources on its website during the coronavirus pandemic.
The July 1 issue will offer an opportunity to reconnect with the community and readers who might not realize that the CN&R remained active online, staff members announced.
The CN&R has covered the news and arts of Butte County since its inception in 1977.
