‘Village Voice,’ Iconic Alt Weekly, to End Its Print Edition

New York City’s iconic magazine The Village Voice will end production of its print edition, The Hollywood Reporter reported Tuesday. Peter Barbey, who purchased the alt-weekly magazine in 2015, cited declining ad revenues in its free print edition as one of the primary reasons for the production halt. “The most powerful thing about the Voice wasn’t that it was printed on newsprint or that it came out every week,” Barbey said. “It was that The Village Voice was alive, and that it changed in step with and reflected the times and the ever-evolving world around it. I want The Village Voice brand to represent that for a new generation of people—and for generations to come.”
