Alabama’s Three Largest Newspapers to Stop Printing

From a Wall Street Journal story by Alexandra Bruell headlined “Alabama’s Three Largest Newspapers to Stop Printing Next Year”:

One of the nation’s biggest publishers has decided to stop printing Alabama’s three largest newspapers and make them digital-only, the latest in a long string of local paper closures across America.

Advance Publications, which owns 24 newspapers as well as the Condé Nast magazine-publishing empire, plans to announce it will end the print operations of the Birmingham News, the Huntsville Times and Mobile’s Press-Register in February.
