The Daily Free Press, Boston University’s independent student newspaper, announced on Monday that after five years of printing a weekly edition, the staff can no longer afford the costs of printing a regular paper.
According to a post on its website, the Free Press was unable to print the Feb. 7 edition of the paper because there were no running ads.
Instead, the Free Press will only print copies of the paper when there is a paid ad running. They will update readers via social media about the status of that week’s print edition.
“We are disappointed that we are not able to print every week. Along with many newspapers around the country, we have had to learn how to adapt to the changing news environment,” says Lexi Peery, chair of the Back Bay Publishing Co. Inc., the nonprofit behind the Free Press.
The Free Press plans to continue to publish online daily and in print “when financially possible.”
