Twin Cities free weekly City Pages is shutting down, owner Star Tribune Media announced Oct. 28.
The weekly has been operating for 41 years.
Thirty people will lose jobs. Affected employees will get severance packages, the company said.
“For more than 40 years, City Pages has been a go-to source for coverage of the Twin Cities arts, culture, politics, entertainment, and dining scenes,” said a statement from the company. “However, despite its strong presence and brand, months of quarantines, restrictions, and closures arising from the COVID-19 pandemic have disrupted the restaurants, clubs, theaters, museums, and other venues that form the core of City Pages’ revenue.”
“City Pages is dead. We had a good run,” read a headline in the paper. http://www.citypages.com/news/city-pages-is-dead-we-had-a-good-run/572915171
