A new Detroit-area newspaper that suspended operations after less than a week says it won’t resume publication as planned.
In a statement Saturday, Detroit Daily Press co-publisher Mark Stern blamed “circulation issues” for the paper’s failure to publish again. The paper had said in November it planned to resume publication after Jan. 1.
The statement said suspension of publication will be permanent “for now.”
The paper hit the streets Nov. 23 but said on its Facebook page on Nov. 27 there had been a lack of advertising, sales and distribution.
Publishers Mark and Gary Stern said they created the newspaper to provide seven-day-a-week home delivery after The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press reduced home delivery to three days a week.
