CHICAGO (November 8, 2013) The satirical newspaper The Onion announced Friday it is discontinuing the last of its print editions and moving to an all-online format as print advertising revenue dries up in the transition to a media landscape dominated by digital platforms.
Onion, Inc. President Mike McAvoy says its focus has been on "growing the digital side" of the business.
The last print editions, in Providence, R.I., Milwaukee and the paper's home city of Chicago, will appear on Dec. 12.
McAvoy says that "while the print edition is an important part" of its history, the company is excited about new digital opportunities.
