The last edition of The Sentinel Newspapers will publish on Jan. 30 ,after serving Montgomery County for more than 160 years and Prince George’s County (both in Maryland) for 88 years, CEO/Publisher Lynn Kapiloff wrote in the papers.

The Sentinel Newspapers have not been profitable for the past decade, according to Kapilof. “We prided ourselves in creating a launchpad for young journalists such as Bob Woodward, who uncovered the Watergate scandal, or current member of the Virginia House of Delegates Danica Roem, who became the first openly transgender person to be elected to the Virginia General Assembly,” Kapilof wrote.

“Our family has owned the Montgomery County Sentinel newspapers for 57 years and the Prince George’s Sentinel for 42 years and it has been my great honor and privilege to be part of this team,” Kapilof wrote in a letter to employees, according to Montgomery Community Media.
