GateHouse Media Inc. owns the newspaper and announced the closing in a story posted Thursday on the newspaper's Web site and
in its Thursday-Friday edition.
The story said ``market forces, challenges specific to the newspaper industry and the loss of a major revenue stream have overwhelmed the newspaper's ability to continue with a profitable business model.''
The Daily Reporter's final edition will be published Feb. 17. The company said the closing will directly affect six employees.
