Army post to stop publishing weekly newspaper
FORT KNOX, Ky. (AP) — A weekly newspaper at a central Kentucky Army post is ceasing publication later this month.
The News Enterprise reports The Gold Standard at Fort Knox announced on Thursday that the Sept. 27 edition will be the paper’s final print edition after 70 years of operation under three names. Fort Knox spokesman Ryan Brus said locally produced news coverage will still be available at www.army.mil/knox .
The paper has been produced and distributed under a contract arrangement with The News-Enterprise for decades.
News-Enterprise Publisher Chris Ordway the decision to stop the presses for the paper was a difficult one. He cited changes in missions on post that affected readership habits and business circumstances.
