Summit Daily News
The Summit Daily News, founded by Jim Pavelich in August 1989, came into being at a crossroads in the newspaper business. In the late 1980s, Selectric typewriters and linotype machines were giving way to rudimentary computers. Then came the internet, which provided email and a wonderful new way to distribute news. The Summit Daily began as a five-day a week paper, added a sixth issue in summer 1992 and then a seventh by December 1994, making it a true daily. In 1994, the Summit Daily, along with its sister paper the Vail Daily, was purchased by Swift Communications. The Summit Daily is now published 365 days a year with an average free distribution of 8,500 papers daily, serving the towns of Breckenridge, Frisco, Silverthorne, Dillon and Summit County’s four world-class ski areas.
