Sunday print editions of The Salt Lake Tribune, Deseret News and New York Times will be delivered to subscribers on Monday.
That’s because a blown transformer knocked out power to the print facility in West Valley that prints and circulates the newspapers on Saturday night, preventing printing and distribution of the newspapers on Sunday morning.
“We regret that The Salt Lake Tribune and Deseret News, as well as the Sunday New York Times will not be printed” in time for Sunday delivery, said Brent Low, president and CEO of Newspaper Agency Corp.
Rocky Mountain Power was unable to clarify what failed in the transformer, but the utility restored power to the printing press Sunday morning after crews worked on the problem through the night.
The Tribune and Deseret News have shared printing facilities via a long-standing joint operating agreement. Tribune and Deseret News customers who have emails on file with newspaper circulation will receive a link to a digital replica edition of the Sunday paper in their inbox. And all stories from The Tribune Sunday edition will be available at sltrib.com.
“We’re grateful that both the Deseret News and Salt Lake Tribune have vibrant digital news operations and readers can access information at their websites,” Low said.
