Kamloops This Week (KTW) will be closing down its newspaper and website later this month.

“We face a bunch of issues that are outside of our control,” said KTW parent company Aberdeen Publishing President Robert Doull in a Tuesday statement.

“Our paper costs have increased.”

Doull said KTW’s printer went out of business with 10 days notice and the sole available replacement was only able to give it a smaller page size at a higher price.

Due to a variety of challenges, including market conditions and rising costs, it will close, leaving Kamloops without a newspaper for the first time since 1884.

  1. A very sad situation. Unfortunately, the newspaper could not even continue in an online format. Who will provide the local news now?
