After 174 years, Ann Arbor News to publish final edition July 23

ANN ARBOR, Mich. The Ann Arbor News plans to publish its last newspaper July 23.

Publisher Laurel Champion announced the date Thursday in an e-mail to employees. The News reported in March it would cease publication after 174 years because of steep revenue losses.

A Web-based media company called AnnArbor.com will take its place, publishing continuously online and producing a print edition on Thursdays and Sundays.

The newspaper closure will eliminate 214 jobs. Seventy workers previously accepted buyout offers.

AnnArbor.com officials have said they probably will hire some current staffers but have not said how many.
