Jersey Journal Faces Closure in April

leave a comment »

The Evening Journal Association will cease publication of The Jersey Journal and a string of weekly newspapers in Hudson County on April 13 if its revenue is not sufficient to support the papers’ reduced expense plan, publisher Kendrick Ross told his news staff on Monday.

In a statement, he added: “We are optimistic that we will be able to come up with a plan that will save The Jersey Journal and some of our weeklies and position ourselves to grow, once the economy rebounds.”

The EJA publishes the 6-days-a-week Jersey Journal as well as weeklies serving residents of Bayonne, West Hudson and Secaucus and along the Hudson River waterfront in Hudson County.

“We will be looking at everything,” Ross said. “We understand how important it is for Hudson County to have a strong local newspaper and we’ll be doing everything we can to make sure we can continue to provide that service.”

On Friday, Ross announced that the EJA will cease publication of El Nuevo Hudson, the company’s Spanish-language free weekly newspaper, with the Feb. 26 paper being the final El Nuevo Hudson edition.
