HOBBS, N.M. (Hobbs News-Sun) — The Hobbs News-Sun is ending its Saturday edition and shrinking the size of the paper amid falling oil prices and the downtown caused by COVID-19.

Hobbs News-Sun Publisher Daniel Russell announced Saturday the moves in response to economic pressures the newspaper faces in the heart of New Mexico's oil and gas country.


Russell says the newspaper will continue to print editions Tuesday through Friday and Sunday.

He also says the width of the paper will go from 25 inches across to 23 inches across to save money on cost.
