The Missoulian and Ravalli Republic, both newspapers owned by Lee Enterprises, merged their newsrooms on Monday.
The combined news staff will be better able to cover the wide breadth and depth of issues facing western Montanans, while delivering that news across all the delivery platforms available today, in print and online.
You have free articles remaining.
Sherry Devlin, editor of the Missoulian, will be editor of both newspapers as part of the change.
Ravalli Republic editor Perry Backus will become a senior reporter headquartered in Hamilton, reporting full-time for both newspapers.
No one was laid off in either newsroom as part of the merger.
In the weeks to come, readers should see an enhanced news report in both the Missoulian and the Ravalli Republic, and on their respective websites.
