Post-Bulletin to stop Austin edition after 13 years

Author:

The last edition of the Austin Post-Bulletin in southeast Minnesota will be published on Dec. 29, according to publisher Randy Champman. The company plans to merge the content with its Rochester newspaper.

The Austin Daily Herald reports the Austin Post-Bulletin has about a half-dozen staff members, but it’s unclear how many will stay with the P-B. The Herald is not affiliated with the Post-Bulletin and plans to continue publishing its own edition for Austin and Mower County readers six days a week.
