An award-winning Toronto newspaper will bite the dust and cease publication after Thursday.  The president of Star Media Group,  John Cruickshank told Newstalk 1010’s Jerry Agar show that The Grid’s last day of publication will be Thursday citing insufficient revenue from marketers as the reason for the paper’s demise. 

“We stuck at it for three years [and] we think we published a terrific publication.  It did very well with our audiences but just didn’t do well with marketers.” said Cruickshank on Newstalk 1010.

The weekly paper was launched in May 2011 and was aimed at young, hip downtowners in Toronto’s core. 

Cruickshank says the Star Media Group is attempting to find other placements for the 22 workers affected.
