Alaska Highway News in British Columbia is shifting to a weekly publishing schedule. The Alaska Highway News began as a weekly newspaper founded by George and Margaret “Ma” Murray in 1943. Today, the Glacier-owned newspaper serves communities in Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Fort Nelson and the surrounding region. Effective March 31, the paper will become a free weekly paper distributed every Thursday. Editorial staff will continue to provide daily news coverage on www.alaskahighwaynews.ca.
The Dawson Creek Mirror, a sister paper in the South Peace region that is also delivered on Thursdays, also plans to broaden its community coverage and will be launching a new website in the coming weeks.
“The changes we are making are designed to ensure the Alaska Highway News and the Mirror’s continued viability for many years to come,” said Publisher William Julian.
