Apparently, Baltimore isn’t the “City that Reads” as its slogan would suggest.
The Baltimore Examiner newspaper will be closing after several months of looking for a buyer, a spokesman confirmed today to the Baltimore Sun (which remains in business despite the bankruptcy of its parent organization, Tribune Company).
The last issue of the newspaper, which is distributed free to homes and through boxes and hawkers on street corners, will be delivered on Sunday, February 15.
Ryan McKibben, the CEO of the paper’s Denver-based owner, Clarity Media Group Inc, also said the company continue to invest in its other papers, the Washington Examiner and San Francisco Examiner.
The Washington Examiner is home to staff cartoonist Nate Beeler.
