Baltimore Sun plans to close City Paper

The Baltimore Sun Media Group plans to close City Paper later this year. No official end date has been announced for the alt-weekly, now in its 40th year.

"Like many alternative weeklies across the country, declining ad revenue at City Paper continues to be a challenge," BSMG's director of marketing, Renee Mutchnik, said in a statement.

This is a difficult decision and we are mindful of how it affects our employees, the readers and advertisers."
