February 23 will be the last day The Albuquerque Tribune will hit the newsstands. After a seven-month search for a buyer that did not materialize, parent company E.W. Scripps Co. announced it is ceasing operations at the 86-year-old newspaper.
According to Bloomberg.com, the paper’s 38 editorial workers will get severance packages, job placement services and a limited health- care subsidy.
Back in December Scripps closed the Cincinnati Post and Kentucky Post.
