Washington City Paper Ends Its Print Newspaper After 41 Years, Will Continue Online

From a story on dcist.com by Avery Kleinman headlined “Staff and Locals React to End of Washington City Paper Print Edition”:

D.C.’s alt-weekly newspaper Washington City Paper announced Friday that it is ending print publication and laying off five members of its staff. The final free print edition will be published on May 5.

The lay-offs cut the current editorial staff significantly, from 11 to six, and include Darrow Montgomery, who’s worked at the paper since 1986 and held the position of staff photographer since the early 2000s. Sports editor Kelyn Soong, City Lights editor Ella Feldman, creative director Nayion Perkins, and director of classifieds, human resources and circulation Heather McAndrews are also losing their jobs.
