Boulder City News was a weekly newspaper distributed in Boulder City, Nevada. The paper was first published in 1937. When it ceased publication, the paper was published by the Greenspun Media Group.[1] The paper was focused on the community of Boulder City including the local sports, news and events. According to the Circulation Verification Council, for the first half of 2009 the paper's circulation increased by 29.3% which was the largest increase in the country for any community newspaper.[2]

History[edit]

The paper was the follow on to the Boulder City Daily News.[3] The paper switched to a weekly format on February 11, 1949.[3] Oral history states that the paper was actually weekly from about 1940 onward.[citation needed] During the war, Robert E. Carter published as often as supplies were available, but he made sure that papers were printed at least once a week. This led to an erratic schedule as both paper and ink supplies, and gas for delivery, were restricted by war-time regulations. [4]

Awards[edit]

The paper was recognized at the third best newspaper with a circulation under 10,000 in the United States in 2007.[1] Most recently the papers circulation was 4,623.
