52 years and still going strong, the Citizen celebrates 52 years of service

The Chicago Citizen Newspaper Group Inc. (CCNG) has been in existence for 52 years and celebrates its anniversary each year on April 19. Under the leadership of the papers’ past chief executive officer, president and publisher William Garth, Sr., the Citizen has flourished and is now the largest black-owned chain of community newspapers in the Midwest. After the death of Garth in 2016, his son, Durrell, became chief executive officer, president and publisher where he and his wife Janice manage the daily operations of the papers.
