Weekly Herald to cease publication after Aug. 29

The Weekly Herald, a free newspaper delivered to residents in south Snohomish County, will cease publication after Aug. 29, the publisher and general manager of The Herald Co. announced Wednesday.

“The Weekly Herald staff has been creative and innovative in serving residents and businesses in Edmonds, Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace,” David Dadisman, publisher, said in a message distributed to employees. “I’m sad that we couldn’t develop a revenue model that sustained this great community journalism, but The Daily Herald and HeraldNet will continue covering all communities throughout Snohomish County with fresh and relevant local news and advertising information.”

The closure will eliminate two full-time positions in The Weekly Herald newsroom and affect eight other employees who have had part-time or temporary responsibilities in various departments of the newspaper.

The Weekly Herald previously published under the name The Enterprise newspapers, which had been operated by The Herald Co. since 1996. The name was changed in April 2011. The parent company also publishes The Daily Herald newspaper, the monthly Herald Business Journal, the Herald Shopper and La Raza del Noroeste, a Spanish-language weekly newspaper.
