The Kansas City Kansan says it will stop publishing a printed newspaper edition after Jan. 10, existing only on the Internet.
GateHouse Media, which owns the newspaper, said Wednesday it will continue to operate the Wyandotte County paper through its Web site, www.kansascitykansan.com.
The final printed edition will come out Jan. 10. The newspaper will send letters to subscribers about refunds.
The Kansan was founded in January 1921. It had been a daily newspaper until earlier this year, when it switched to twice-weekly publication.
A number of smaller U.S. newspapers have either gone online or cut back home delivery this year as the industry struggles with declining print readership and advertising revenue.
