Moosehead Ails: Greenville (Me.) Weekly Shuts Down

Town view in 1907Image via WikipediaAfter 36 years, the Greenville, Maine-based  weekly Moosehead Messenger, "the Voice of Moosehead Lake and the North Woods,"  has ceased publication, the Bangor Daily News ("BDN") reports.

The paper, owned by KoPenTen, LLC, and managed by Hometown Newspapers, LLC, ended its run with its February 9 issue. The paper, which had a circulation of roughly 3,000, succumbed both to the sagging economy and the owner's interest in pursuing other ventures, according to the BDN online article.

Greenville is still served by the five-year-old weekly Moosehead Matters. Messenger subscribers will receive the Highlands Journal beginning Feb. 16 to complete their subscription. The Journal plans to incorporate some Messenger features into its publication, the BDN reports.
