History and Facts About the Summit Daily News

The Summit Daily News was founded by Jim Pavelich in August of 1989 and later purchased by Swift Newspapers in 1993. The SDN began as a five-day a week paper, added a sixth issue in the summer of 1992 and then a seventh by December 1994, making it a true daily.

The Summit Daily is now published 365 days a year with an average free distribution of 12,000 papers daily, serving the towns of Breckenridge, Frisco, Silverthorne, Dillon and our four world-class ski resorts of Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin. The Summit Daily employs 29 full-time employees, 11 part-time and two interns.

The Summit Daily News is read by 92% of residents and visitors each day. In 2007 and 2008, the Summit Daily received Swift’s Best New Product Awards and won a total of nine Colorado Press Association/Colorado Associated Press awards.

We pride ourselves on providing balanced, insightful community coverage for local residents, second homeowners and visitors. Our robust website, summitdaily.com, takes advantage of cutting-edge community interface tools such as public photo galleries, blogs, web videos and breaking news coverage.

We also rival The Aspen Times as the most dog-friendly newspaper in Colorado!
