History[edit]

The newspaper was established in 2006 as the Charlotte Citizen, but changed its name to The Citizen in 2001 to accommodate its new readers in Hinesburg.[2]

The paper was part of Wind Ridge Publishing, owned by Holly Johnson.[6] In 2015, Wind Ridge Publishing, which owned The Citizen and Shelburne News, moved its printing operations to Vermont.[7]

In 2017, the Citizen was purchased by the Stowe Reporter Group, under publisher Greg Popa.[8] The Stowe Reporter group also owns the Stowe Reporter, Waterbury Record, News & Citizen of Morrisville, the Valley Reporter, and the Shelburne News, all part of the Burlington Area Newspapers Group.[9]
