American Canyon Eagle closes

The weekly American Canyon Eagle reported last week that it would end its Thursday print publication.

American Canyon is a city between Napa and Vallejo.

“We started the Eagle during a time when American Canyon was forecast to boom economically and our strategy was to be well entrenched in the community as that boom unfolded,” said Davis Taylor, group publisher for Lee’s Napa Valley Publishing.

“The economic growth did not reach the levels we and many others expected. The point of mentioning this is that our experience with ACE is not a failure of execution but rather a calculated risk that did not pay off as well as we intended it to.”
