The Sun Valley area, which long has had two competing weekly newspapers, is losing one, as the Wood River Journal ceases publication with its Oct. 22 edition. Express Publishing Inc. of Ketchum, publisher of the rival Idaho Mountain Express and Guide, has purchased the assets of the Wood River Journal. The Express will continue to publish twice a week; the Wood River Journal name will now go on what previously was called the “Valley” section of the Wednesday editions of the Express. The Express also has acquired archived copies of the Journal and its predecessors and its online presence. Click here for the full story from the Idaho Mountain Express.
