8th publisher exits Free Press

The eighth in a rapid succession of publishers for the Grand Junction Free Press has left the weekly paper after four months.

Kim Burner was selected publisher and general manager in August, according to the Free Press.

The paper is owned by Colorado Mountain News Media, a subsidiary of Swift Newspapers Inc., based in Carson City, Nev.

Jim Morgan, general manager of Colorado News Media, said Burner is no longer with the company. He said her title was general manager, not publisher, as the Free Press had reported.

Before coming to the Free Press, Burner had operated two other newspapers in the chain: the Sky Hi News and Middle Park Times in Grand County.

She replaced Valerie J. Smith, who remains with the organization in marketing, Morgan said.

There is no interim publisher.

The Free Press started in 2003 as a five-day-a-week paper. It was downsized to three days a week in 2009, then to a weekly in March of this year. The building at 145 N. Fourth St. that houses the Free Press was listed for sale in November, although the newspaper said it is looking for a new home for its smaller staff.
