Twin Cities weekly newspapers are shutting down in the face of pandemic

The Hastings paper and the Bulletin were both owned by RiverTown Multimedia, a subsidiary of Fargo-based Forum Communications.

Solid local reporting, regular coverage of business openings and ribbon cuttings, a trusted presence for decades in Washington County: None of it was enough to keep the Bulletin going when the pandemic hit.

A weekly newspaper covering Woodbury, Cottage Grove and the county's southern communities, the 33-year-old Bulletin was done in by an advertising slump inflamed by the coronavirus, its owners said. They shut it down last week.
