The Register Citizen closed its Torrington office earlier this month after a 145-year presence in the city. The newspaper will continue to publish for print and on its website but the newspaper’s lone reporter will now work from home, in New Milford.
The Register Citizen has been owned by Hearst Connecticut Media since 2017. It was previously owned by Digital First Media and its predecessor, the Journal Register Company.
Hearst Connecticut Media Publisher Michael DeLuca said the decision to close the Torrington office was done “in favor of a more flexible and productive work environment for our employees, including the ability for them to work from home.”
