After 66 years, the Reston, Va.-based American Press Institute ("API") has terminated its staff and will merge with the Newspaper Association of America ("NAA"), The Washington Post reported.

Founded in 1946 by Providence Journal editor Sevllon Brown and initially headquartered at Columbia University, the nonprofit API ran programs that attracted journalists nationwide. With the print journalism industry in the doldrums, contributions from news organizations have declined and program attendees dwindled, necessitating API eliminating its eight full-time staffers, and one part-time employee.

According to the Post article, API and NAA will merge their endowments.
