The Webster-Kirkwood (MO) Times is back in print following their shutdown in March due to Covid-19. The comeback is due to donations from loyal readers and the focus and energy of managers who worked with the local business community to craft a deal to keep this paper printing!
Today the newspaper prints over 35,000 full color copies each week to two suburban communities just southwest of St. Louis. The staff, although operating on a tight budget boasts high ad count with tons of profitable classified ads.
E&P Publisher Mike Blinder goes one-on-one with two of the Webster-Kirkwood (MO) Times’ manager/owners: Publisher, Randy Drilingas and Editor-in-Chief Jaime Mowers who detail their struggle to get the paper back in print and what they are doing today to keep it growing.
