Sad new from the Washington Post yesterday:
“The Washington Post will stop publishing its stand-alone print magazine, one of the last of its kind in the country and which has been published under different names for more than six decades, the newspaper’s executive editor, Sally Buzbee, announced Wednesday.
…restaurant reviews and the crossword puzzle will continue to appear in print. Popular features such as Date Lab will not continue.
The magazine is distributed with copies of the Sunday paper. Its last issue will publish on Dec. 25“

Express has been an integral part of the morning commute for Washingtonians–a lively, highly engaging publication that has served Washington’s Metro riders for years. With the growth of WiFi in Washington’s Metro system, The Post can now serve those readers in ways that couldn’t have been imagined when it launched 16 years ago. Read More
