Proposals to be considered for ownership of The Cordova Times are due to Native Village of Eyak by May 1.

At a Tuesday, Feb. 15, NVE Tribal Council meeting, councilmembers addressed the Tribe’s desire to find a new owner for The Cordova Times.

No formal action was taken, but Council laid out a timeline for considering potential owners. The Tribe announced earlier this month that it intends to give the newspaper to a qualified candidate. The selection process will occur during the month of May and council hopes to decide by June 1.

“It is an award-winning newspaper and has a steady and dedicated readership,” Council vice chair Sylvia Lange said earlier this month. “This is an opportune time for someone with ink in their veins to take on a wonderful flagship paper, work with a great staff, and call it their own. I dearly hope we can accomplish that.”

Interested parties should contact NVE Deputy Director Brooke Mallory for more information at brooke.mallory@eyak-nsn.gov.
