PHOENIX — The website for a Tucson, Ariz. newspaper was taken offline Friday.
The website of the Tucson Citizen now displays a blank screen with the following message:
Gannett Co. Inc. announced today that tucsoncitizen.com will become a site for the archives of the Tucson Citizen. More than 200,000 articles dating to 1993 will be free and searchable.
The Tucson Citizen, which ended its print edition in 2009, has been a web site compendium of blogs written by local citizens and provided links to Gannett news content.
“We are pleased to continue tucsoncitizen.com as an important community resource for Tucsonans who want to research the history and traditions of their city,” said Kate Marymont, senior vice president/news for the Community Publishing Division.
The redesigned tucsoncitizen.com archives will be available in several days.
Gannett and Lee Enterprises Inc. will continue to be partners in TNI Partners. Lee publishes the Arizona Daily Star.
