Changes to print operations

On Monday, Oct. 26, 2020, the Deseret News and The Salt Lake Tribune confirmed they will not renew their joint operating agreement for print and delivery services.

With the rise of digital news consumption, and with an increasing number of readers now getting their news primarily online, the two newspapers independently determined to let the JOA expire at the end of its term, on December 31 of this year. Each newspaper has developed its own strategy for independent operations outside the JOA, including meeting its print needs and moving forward independently in today’s new environment.

Newspaper subscribers will continue to receive their newspapers, which now will be printed and delivered by The Salt Lake Tribune and the Deseret News independently. With the expiration of the JOA, the two newspapers also will no longer share solicitation of advertising or subscriptions, shared administrative services, or any other administrative functions.
