Britain's The Independent Sunday published its final print edition today, following the publisher's decision to go online-only starting next Saturday, March 26.
The paper's publisher, ESI Media, announced on Feb. 12 that The Independent would go completely online and that a new app is available for subscriptions.
"The newspaper industry is changing, and that change is being driven by readers," said owner Evgeny Lebedev in an interview with the paper. "They're showing us that the future is digital."
There are around 150 full-time editorial staff working for the paper. Redundancies are expected, but also new roles are set to be created for the staff preparing the digital content.
Both The Independent and Independent on Sunday were launched in 1986. Current owner Evgeny Lebedev bought The Independent in 2010 for £1.
The print paper had a peak circulation of 400,000, but this year readership fell to as low as 56,000.
The website, on the other hand, has increased its audience significantly and now reaches 70 million global users.
