Beginning Thursday, the paperback newspaper printed by the Observer Media Group of Companies will become obsolete.
That is because the agency has chosen to go fully digital. In March, the company announced that it would be phasing out print media as it hoped to transition to digital delivery via customers’ email.
An article written in the editorial section of the last printed newspaper stated that “after almost a quarter century of printing six days per week” it is evolving.
It said the unexpected eviction notice that was handed down by the Stanford Liquidators forced them to move up the timeline to become fully digital.
This would be the third time in over two decades that the company has had to move its production.
The agency had hoped that the Coolidge site, where the agencies Founder Winston Derick erected a “Samuel Fergie Derrick Media Centre” memorial, would be a staple and was continuously negotiating with the liquidators to buy off the building.
Now, they have less than six months to find another location.
