Suburban Dallas Community Newspaper Group Shuts Down

Today Newspapers, a cluster of community papers serving Dallas' south suburbs, are folding with their final editions Thursday.

The closure, first reported by John Coleman in The Dallas Morning News, followed a loss of advertising revenue and the inability to find a buyer, said Publisher Kim Petty.

"Everybody was hurt by the economy," Petty told the Morning News. "Most of our advertisers were mom-and-pop type stores, and they just couldn't keep it up. There is just not a lot of hope for small-town newspapers."
