Another Newspaper Goes Down

Thursday, February 19, 2009

From NAM:

After more than a decade on newsstands, Ming Pao Daily, a Chinese language newspaper based in San Francisco, kissed its readers goodbye on Valentine’s Day.

The newspaper, whose parent publisher is in Hong Kong, ran a “ceasing publication announcement” on Saturday, saying it had been forced to withdraw from the market because its operations “had been severely affected by the economic recession.”

About two weeks earlier, Ming Pao Daily halted publication of its New York City print edition. It still maintains an online presence.
Maybe there'll be a stimulus package for Asian American print publications?
