Two Peace River newspapers merging

Glacier Media (TSX:GVC) says its will merge two daily newspapers in the Peace River region of British Columbia.

The area has been traditionally served by the Dawson Creek Daily News and the Alaska Highway News in Fort St. John.

But the papers' regional manager William Julian says the Alaska Highway News will expand Feb. 3 to cover Dawson Creek, Fort Nelson to the north and the surrounding areas.

He says the move will deliver improved content, coverage and circulation to readers and advertisers.

According to Glacier's website, the Alaska Highway News has a circulation of 4,100 and the Dawson Creek Daily News has a circulation of 2,200.

Earlier this month, Glacier closed the Kamloops Daily News, citing declining revenue and a failure to sufficiently cut costs.
