H15 village voice

In New York City, the influential alternative weekly newspaper The Village Voice has announced it will stop its print publication after 62 years. Founded in 1955 by Dan Wolf, Ed Fancher and Norman Mailer, the left-leaning paper was the first alternative weekly in the United States. It’s won multiple Pulitzer Prizes over the years. It’s also helped launch the careers of some of the nation’s best writers, including Pulitzer Prize winners Hilton Als and Colson Whitehead. The Village Voice will now continue as an online publication.
