LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- The Lewisboro Ledger weekly newspaper ended print distribution on Wednesday, ending a 39-year run of delivering local news to the community.
The HAN Network said on the Ledger website that its website will continue to exist. The Ledger is part of a group that includes 12 weekly newspapers, but is the only one in New York. The other 11 are in Connecticut.
Like nearly all newspapers, the Ledger struggled financially in recent years. It was founded in the mid 1970s by two Lewisboro residents and had editions in Bedford and Pound Ridge in the 1980s. Newspaper staff will be reassigned with the HAN Network, the story said.
"The decision to close a newspaper was not made lightly, and with it comes great sadness,'' the story said. "Newspapers are part of the community, and the loss of those printed pages to some will be like the loss of a longtime neighbor. We at the HAN Network feel the sadness of not being able to share our work with our neighbors in Lewisboro every Thursday, as we have for 39 years."
