The Other Paper
Columbus, Ohio, alt-weekly The Other Paper will close at the end of January. It’s owned by the Dispatch Printing Company, which publishes the Columbus Dispatch, as well as an A&E paper called Alive!

“In viewing the research of who reads the two publications, and after hearing from the local advertising community, it became more and more obvious that one publication would better serve our readers and advertisers,” said Michael Fiorile, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Dispatch Printing Co.

The Other Paper was sold to the Dispatch Printing Company in 2011.
