The Mexico edition of The Miami Herald, Mexico City’s only English-language daily, is folding on June 1, the paper announced.
“Unfortunately due to economic considerations the paper will close until further notice,” the paper said in a note to readers. There was no further information on the shuttering.
The paper was launched four years ago in a partnership with the big Mexico City daily El Universal. It was not clear who made the decision to pull the plug on the Herald. A McClatchy Co. spokesperson said he had no information on that. Officials involved with the newspaper at the Herald and El Universal could not be reached.
The Herald was launched two months after a Mexican-owned English-language daily, The Mexico City News, was shut down after 53 years of publication.
