New York Press To Ban Hooker Ads, Kiss Away Millions

nypress_unread.jpg

Manhattan Media, the new owners of the New York Press, want to give the Village Voice a run for its money. They also want to ban hooker ads — an alt-weekly staple. CEO Tom Allon via Media Mob:

“As of this week, we are not going to accept any explicit advertising … We’re probably kissing away about a million dollars a year in revenue. We’re not making a moral or puritanical decision. We just believe in the long-term, it’s not best for the publication.”
