The Central Valley Business Journal (CVBJ) is shutting its doors after 28 years of being in the news publishing industry.
Headquartered in Stockton, California, the monthly publication covered news in San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Merced counties both online and in print.
In a letter addressed to readers and clients of the paper from CVBJ publisher and owner, Sharon Calone, there was no given reason for the paper shutting down other than she wants to enjoy her retirement.
“It is with a very heavy heart I’m announcing the closing of the Central Valley Business Journal,” Calone said in her letter. “I want to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to all the many valued supporters of my entire venture, over the past 28 years.”
The Central Valley Business Journal is still running but they have not posted any new stories since mid-June.
The Business Journal, which covers Fresno, Tulare, Kings and Madera counties is not affiliated with the Central Valley Business Journal.
