2016 Bay City Democrat Releases Last Issue

March 10, 2022 all-day

The Bay City Democrat weekly newspaper rolled out the last edition of its 126 years Thursday, March 10, 2016, with a front-page article called “The end of an era.”

It’s no April fool’s joke, as some curious people have wondered as they stopped by, said Editor and Publisher Wendy M. Knochel.

“I’m shocked, just totally shocked,” said Bay City Mayor Kathleen L. Newsham. “They have done so much for the community.”
