End Of An Era: The Village Voice To Ends Its Print Edition After 62 Years

 

Via The New York Daily News:

The venerable Village Voice, a New York newsstand staple since its 1955 inception, bid farewell Tuesday to its print edition. The left-leaning weekly, co-founded by the late Norman Mailer and once home to legendary bylines like Wayne Barrett, Nat Hentoff and Robert Christgau, is going digital-only.

The Voice intends to “maintain its iconic progressive brand with its digital platform and a variety of new editorial initiatives,” owner Peter Barbey said in a statement. Barbey, whose Reading Eagle Co. purchased the Voice in 2015, envisioned a bright future for the online-only publication.

The Village Voice was actually my introduction to gay life and Men Seeking Men.
