RGJ - Reno Gazette Journal; Living large

Post by CUB »

It was announced Thursday that McClatchy newspapers filed for bankruptcy.

Newspapers continue to struggle. But not the RGJ.

Prime real estate on the Truckee River.

Reno Land and Cattle is incorrectly identified as the 14 story Palladio owner. Only the second floor of the Palladio, leased by the RGJ, is owned by Reno Land and Cattle.

Reno Land and Cattle is owned by Vince Griffith. RGJ darling Britton Griffith, daughter of Mr. Griffith, is making her third attempt at a Reno City Council seat after resigning from the Planning Commission.

Oddly, this article was written by Anjeanette Damon, “government watchdog reporter”, for the RGJ.

[update 5/21/22]
The RGJ is asking readers to donate for the salary of a reporter:

This is in addition to making much more content available only to subscribers and ending Saturday papers in March 2022. The papers are thin and void of substance. More ways to squeeze customers are coming. Clearly, the RGJ is in a death spiral.

Maybe they should have leased more affordable office space.
