Hayden Valley Press to cease publication

Today’s edition marks the final publication of the Hayden Valley Press, a small weekly newspaper owned by WorldWest LLC, the parent company of the Steamboat Pilot & Today and Craig Daily Press.

Pilot & Today and Hayden Valley Press Editor Brent Boyer said it no longer makes sense to publish a weekly paper consisting of the same content that appears daily in the Steamboat Today. Circulation numbers and feedback from Hayden officials and community leaders support the decision, Boyer said.

About 340 copies of the Hayden Valley Press are published each Wednesday and distributed in Hayden. About 100 of those copies are mailed to subscribers. The others are available at newspaper racks for 25 cents a copy.

By contrast, about 1,000 copies of the Steamboat Today are distributed for free six days a week in Hayden. Another 300 copies of the Sunday Pilot & Today are distributed in Hayden.
