North Forty News to increase frequency

FORT COLLINS — The North Forty News, a monthly newspaper in Northern Colorado, will convert to a weekly publication by July this year.

Publisher Blaine Howerton bought the publication  in May 2017 in an effort to save a publication that its previous owner intended to close down. The North Forty News was started in 1993 in Waverly.

Howerton said that the publication since 2017 has doubled its number of paid subscribers and tripled its circulation. It is available now at about 1,000 locations in Northern Colorado.

The company bought the Scene community entertainment magazine in January 2018.

“The expansion of North Forty News through acquisition of SCENE helped us gain even more momentum. With combined operations, we created a concept where we could deliver hyper-local community news throughout Northern Colorado in North Forty News alongside a well-established monthly arts, entertainment and lifestyle publication,” Howerton said as he announced his intentions to increase frequency of his newspaper.

The North Forty News has also added a quarterly series of magazines called the Northern Colorado Magazine.

“Words can’t express how much I appreciate the support of our community. We give to Northern Colorado’s communities every day. They are giving right back through their support by subscribing and through their advertising dollars. Our expansion will make us Northern Colorado’s only weekly publication circulating to all significantly-sized areas of Northern Colorado. I can’t wait until  this summer when we continue to roll out our new platform,” Howerton said.

North Forty News has begun its expansion with mid-month editions in May and June and a plan to increase monthly page count and circulation by more than four times.
