After a 55-year run, AM News will cease publication September 9, affecting 20 staffers, Crain's Chicago Business reported yesterday.

The American Medical Association also will shut down the AmedNews.com Web site, though content will remain accessible through the end of 2013. Sagging ad sales was blamed for the decision to end the print edition of the magazine that published 24 times annually. AM News boasted a print circulation of about 230,000.

The research-oriented Journal of the American Medical Association ("JAMA") will continue to publish, according to the Crain's article.
