Citizen's status back to day-to-day

The uncertain future of the Tucson Citizen will continue for a while longer.

The newspaper will continue its day-to-day operation as negotiations for a potential sale continue, Kate Marymont vice president/news at Gannett, told Jennifer Boice, interim editor, Friday afternoon.

Gannett Co. Inc. had announced in January it would close the Citizen March 21 if no buyer came forward.

March 17, the company announced that the paper would continue day-to-day because potential buyers had shown interest.

Two weeks ago, the company said the Citizen would remain open until at least May 9.
