New Detroit Newspaper on Hold During First Week

Friday, 27 Nov 2009 04:36 PM

 

ROYAL OAK, Mich. -- A new Detroit-area newspaper says it will stop publishing until after Jan. 1.

The Detroit Daily Press hit the streets Monday, and home delivery was planned for next week.

But on its Facebook page, the paper said Friday there's been a lack of advertising, sales and distribution. The paper calls it "just a bump in the road."

A recorded phone message says there will be no paper for six weeks.

Publishers Mark and Gary Stern say they created the paper to provide seven-day-a-week home delivery after The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press reduced home delivery to three days a week. A message seeking comment was left Friday with Mark Stern.
