"It is with heavy hearts that we announce that, like many other community businesses, Southwest Journal has been impacted by the COVID pandemic," the paper's cofounders Janis Hall and Terry Gahan said in statement on the publication's website. "Our advertising sales are down by over 30 percent this year and this latest decline follows a years-long loss in newspaper revenue."

The Southwest Journal has been publishing since 1990 and has built a circulation of 32,000, according to the website.
