The little newspaper that could: Martinez Gazette still alive, despite reports it would end 151-year run in 2019

Mar 6, 2020

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED: March 6, 2020 at 3:09 p.m. MARTINEZ — It turns out that reports of the Martinez Gazette’s impending demise may have been a bit premature. While it was widely reported last year that the Gazette was scheduled to cease publishing at the end of 2019, Contra Costa County’s oldest newspaper is still very much alive, both online and in print form. The paper was owned by Gibson Publishing, which informed staff that it was shutting down the paper at year’s end. But a Riverside-based publishing group called PCM Publishing “expressed interest” in keeping the Gazette alive, its editor Rick Jones said in an email in January. Jones deferred questions to managers of the Hemet and San Jacinto Chronicle, which is also published by PCM, but several requests for comment were not returned. The Gazette was founded in 1858. Originally a daily newspaper, it now publishes weekly and covers all things Martinez, as well as some statewide happenings. “There are so many people in Martinez whose grandparents or parents worked here at one time, delivered the paper, worked at the printing press,” Jones said in an interview last year, about the Gazette’s alleged upcoming end. “This was a thriving daily paper for a long, long time. A lot of peoples’ lives have been touched by the Gazette.”
