Per Ben Cannizarro, the general manager and publisher of Greater Media Newspapers:
"As of the last week of January, Greater Media Newspapers will discontinue publication of the Woodbridge Sentinel. Greater Media Newspapers will also cease publication of the Brick Township Bulletin in Ocean County.
As most of our readers know, the last two years have seen our nation’s economy challenged in a way it hasn’t been in decades. Newspapers have certainly been affected by this downturn, and while we believe that community newspapers are the future of our industry, our group of weekly newspapers has not been immune to the economic reality those challenges have brought.
Like many newspaper companies, we are facing tough decisions that we believe are necessary to keep our core business strong and see us into a prosperous future. And after careful consideration, we made the difficult decision to close those publications.
Greater Media Newspapers remains committed to providing the award-winning journalism that our readers and advertisers have come to rely on.
We will continue to provide up-to-date news and features through our publications the News Transcript, Tri-Town News, Examiner, Independent, Hub and Atlanticville, covering parts of Monmouth and Ocean counties, and the Suburban, East Brunswick Sentinel, Edison/Metuchen Sentinel and North/South Brunswick Sentinel, covering sections of Middlesex County, as well as on our website, http://www.gmnews/. com.
We thank you for your support and readership over the years"
