The Bridge will say farewell to print, gather the community online

Minnesota publisher Becky Clawson writes:

fter three years of publication as a monthly newspaper (decades more for our predecessors, the Seward Profile and the Southeast Angle), The Bridge has decided to stop publishing a print edition. Next month’s issue will be our last — at least for the time being. But our commitment to keeping you informed will continue as we shift our operation online to our website,

This decision was a complicated and often heartbreaking one to make. We take our role in this community very seriously. We’re proud of the 40-year legacy of the parent publications that combined to create The Bridge. We’re proud of the service we provide to our readers and our advertisers.

But the numbers just don’t add up anymore. Even with the redesign and page size changes we made earlier this year, the paper has been running at a deficit throughout 2009, and there are no clear signs on the horizon that this situation will improve any time soon.
