Booster closes its doors
Newspaper served Jasper for 46 years

Posted By Sun Media

After 46 years of publication, Wednesday, March 11 is the final edition of the Jasper Booster, Sun Media has announced.

Due to increasing challenges in the newspaper industry, shrinking advertising revenues and rising costs, it has been determined that the continuation of publication is no longer viable.

“It was a very difficult decision to cease publication in such a wonderful and picturesque community, but the reality is, the business model no longer made sense in the current economic environment,” said Craig Martin, executive vice president of operations for Western Canada.

“We would like to thank our loyal advertisers, readers, and employees for their years of continuous support,” wrote Martin in a news release.
