Capitol Weekly, the 23-year-old chronicle of state government in Sacramento, announced today that it is suspending its print edition effective Thursday.
The paper will continue to publish an online version.
The newspaper's publisher, Arnold York: released a statement online:
"This step, an essential element of the reorganization of our company, was prompted by challenging economic times coupled with the need for new technologies to expand our company's online, social media and electronic communication capabilities."
Founded in 1988 by Ken Mandler, the newspaper in the early years focused largely on state government jobs. Arnold and Karen York purchased it in 2005, and expanded its mission to include more news and analysis.
