The Home News, a group of weekly newspapers, on Tuesday announced it was dropping two of its editions.
The company also laid off nine workers, according to sources.
Bruce Spotleson, group publisher for Greenspun Media Group, which operates the weekly newspapers, and others at the company did not return calls for comment.
The Home News has served Henderson and Boulder City for more than 50 years, according to Greenspun Media.
Greenspun Media, in a statement dated Tuesday, said “it is revamping its focus” at the Home News group of weekly newspapers.
“With this move, the company will at the same time end its Summerlin and Silverado Ranch editions,” Greenspun Media said.
In place of the two print publications, the newspaper group said, it will expand community news and information at the lasvegassun.com Web site.
The Homes News will publish neighborhood editions for Green Valley, Henderson, South Valley and Boulder City. The papers will add 25,000 households in Henderson, Greenspun Media said.
Greenspun Media laid off workers in the Summerlin, Green Valley and Henderson Home News editions, according to a source who requested anonymity.
Sources said four sports reporters, three news reporters, one photographer and one copy editor were laid off at the Home News.
The Home News competes with the View community newspapers. View newspapers are published by Stephens Media, which also publishes the Review-Journal.
