detdailypress.pngThe Detroit Daily Press, a print newspaper to compete with the Free Press and the News, launched last Monday with a 200,000-copy press run.

On Friday, the publishers, newspaper veterans Mark and Gary Stern announced that the paper had trouble getting advertisers and was dealing with “operations problems” and that the paper would be suspended until the first of next year. “This is just a bump in the road and not the end of the Detroit Daily Press,” read a statement by the paper.

This is a huge setback to the 30-strong newsroom, which includes many journalists from Detroit’s other struggling papers.
