Deseret News and Salt Lake Tribune to not renew joint operating agreement


The Salt Lake Tribune said Monday that the news organization would print a weekly publication starting next year and end its daily printing option for newspaper subscribers.

The Tribune’s board of directors announced the decision on Monday, shortly after The Tribune and Deseret News issued a joint statement confirming the end of the decades-long joint operating agreement between Deseret News and The Salt Lake. Tribune at the end of 2020.

With the end of the JOA, the two publications will contract their printing needs with third parties, continue to improve their digital footprint, and be free to trace their print and digital futures independently of each other.
