Rokkī Shinpō Masthead

The Rokkī Shinpō, renamed from the Rokkī Nippon (Rocky Nippon) in 1943, was a tri-weekly newspaper published in Denver, Colorado. The president and editor also changed from Shirō Toda to his eldest daughter Tetsuko Toda after Shirō was interned. The Rokkī Shinpō rivaled with the Kakushū Jiji (Colorado Times). Although circulation expanded during WWII as the Japanese American newspapers on the West Coast ceased to publish, the publication ended in 1951.

『ロッキー新報』は『ロッキー日本』から1943年に改題され、コロラド州デンバーで週三回発行された。社長兼編集者だった戸田四郎が強制収容所に送られ、長女の哲子が跡を継いだ。『格州時事』と『ロッキー新報』はライバル紙だった。西海岸の日系新聞が発行停止となり、第二次世界大戦中『ロッキー新報』の発行部数は増加したが、1951年に廃刊になった。
