The Sept. 30 edition of the Waycross Journal-Herald (Georgia) will be the final edition, the publisher said, according to The Brunswick News.
Publisher Roger Williams, whose family has owned the paper since his grandfather purchased it in 1916, said his siblings and other stockholders would have had to drain their personal finances to keep the paper going, the Brunswick paper said.
Williams said he informed employees Friday. “We told them what the situation was. I hate it, but we didn’t have any recourse,’’ Williams said, according to The Brunswick News.
The family attempted to sell the newspaper and had two offers, but both collapsed.
