Rockdale, Newton newspapers to publish joint Sunday edition

CONYERS — The newspapers of record for Rockdale and Newton counties said they will start publishing a joint Sunday edition.

The Newton Citizen and The Rockdale Citizen are both owned by Gray and already share content. But, starting this weekend, the newspapers will no longer publish a Saturday edition.

“The newspaper business is ever-changing, and we are constantly looking for ways to adjust our operations while still providing the best local news and advertising content for both our print and online readers,” The Rockdale Citizen quoted Alice Queen, editor and publisher of the Citizen newspapers, as saying. “More and more we find that delivering news and advertising to meet our customers’ needs requires a combination of our printed products and our websites.”

Gray also owns The Gwinnett Daily Post, Clayton News Daily, Henry Daily Herald and Jackson Progress-Argus newspapers.
