COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The owner of an alternative weekly newspaper in central Ohio says the last issue of the publication will come at the end of the month.
The Dispatch Printing Company said Monday the final issue of The Other Paper is set for Jan. 31.
The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/UCO4EP ) that The Dispatch Printing Company acquired The Other Paper in September 2011 from American Community Newspapers. The Other Paper was the company's second free-distribution entertainment weekly, joining its alive! publication.
Michael J. Fiorile, president and chief operating officer of The Dispatch Printing Company, said alive! was determined to be the stronger brand after a review of feedback from readers and local advertisers.
The Columbus Dispatch is also owned by The Dispatch Printing Company.
