The Crossroads Journal Ends Paper Edition, Goes Online

A locally owned monthly newspaper called The Crossroads Journal has ended its print editions and has gone completely online. The newspaper serves several small towns in the area including Browns Summit, Gibsonville, Elon College, McCleansville, and others.

The monthly print newspaper has been printed since 1999 and was a tabloid newsprint product with color pages on the exterior and black and white pages inside.

Serving small towns mainly in Guilford and Alamance Counties, the newspaper said it "crossed counties and communities" to gather the news.

The newspaper is owned by Robert Thomasson of Brown Summit. Thomasson had worked at other newspapers in the area as a reporter and photographer before starting his own newspaper.

In the past month, the newspaper has ended its print newspaper distribution and has gone entirely online, producing video stories that play on the front page of its website. Thomasson could not be reached by telephone, but Stone Printing of High Point where the paper was run off confirmed that he had ended the print edition.
