Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ends print publication

113016-tribrev
The Nov. 30, 2016, newspaper is the last print edition of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review is ceasing publication of its print edition.

The newspaper's Nov. 30 edition was its last. The outlet plans to continue publishing stories online and through a new email edition.

Trib Total Media will launch a new website, pghtrib.com, to cover Pittsburgh-area news and sports, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The company has downsized significantly over the past year, with cost-cutting measures that included layoffs, buyouts, and selling off properties. The latest shift has resulted in 106 full- and part-time workers being laid off, according to the company.

Trib Total Media says its two other daily publications, the Greensburg Tribune-Review and the Valley News Dispatch, will continue to print seven days a week. Its weekly papers also will continue to publish print editions.

"We have a very simple, very strong message: We’re not going anywhere," Tribune-Review editor Luis Fabregas told the Post-Gazette. "We’re very much alive."
