Hartford, CT – Today Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement after Tribune Publishing announced that it would be permanently closing the Hartford Courant newsroom at 285 Broad Street in Hartford at the end of the year.
“The Hartford Courant is America’s oldest continuously published paper. Over its more than 250 year history the newspaper has broken countless stories, and continues to be the paper of record in Connecticut. Over the past several years, reporters and readers have experienced severe cuts to staffing, and today it was announced they will be losing their newsroom. This announcement is very disappointing and I hope Tribune Publishing reverses this decision,” said Larson.
