News Strong news – Boston, MA: New York Times / Red Sox Boston Globe owners close free newspaper METRO 1.04.2020.

BOSTON METRO release goodbye statement 1.04.2020. After 19 years in Boston, we are sad to announce the closure of Metro Boston, effective today. We realize this may seem sudden, but after our New York and Philadelphia editions were sold, we no longer have access to centralized resources, and a difficult decision had to be made.

We want to sincerely thank everyone who has supported Metro Boston over the past 19 years. Hopefully we are leaving this incredible city better off than when we started publishing in 2001. A special thanks to our founders, Metro International, our management, editors, sales team, distributors, and everyone else who has been involved in this newspaper since the beginning. You’ve all worked so hard to make Metro an important part of Boston’s media landscape. In the publishing world, you’re only as good as the people who bring the paper to life each day, and it’s been an absolute joy to share this Metro journey with all of you.

To our loyal advertisers, thank you for trusting us to promote your business. We’ve enjoyed many successful partnerships, and you’ve always been willing to share your passion for the Metro brand. To our valued partners and vendors, we thank you for your support and belief in the free commuter daily.

And finally to our readers, none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you for continually giving our editors valuable feedback to help us improve the product over the years. As you continue to enjoy life in this beautiful city, we hope you will remember Metro Boston as fondly as we will remember you.
