Last week, Jim McKiernan stepped down as publisher of the Bonner County Daily Bee, Priest River Times and Bonners Ferry Herald.
The circumstances of the departure are still unclear. We have reached out to the Hagadone Corporation, McKiernan himself and interim publisher Larry Riley, also the publisher of the Coeur d’Alene Press, for a statement but have not yet received a response. We will publish a follow-up should we receive one.
While we have you ...
... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
