Lewis Lazare follows Chicago media and marketing news

Recently in Inside Publications Category

The Chicago Journal company is closing one of its neighborhood weeklies, selling two and keeping two more. The paper to be shuttered is the Chicago Journal West Town, which covers Wicker Park Bucktown and Ukranian Village. The Oak Park-based media company started the West Town paper in 2005. The two papers being sold to Ron Roenigk of Inside Publications are the News-Star and the Booster, two of the last three of the Lerner newspapers the Chicago Journal company bought in January, 2008, from the Chicago Sun-Times. Roenigk's company publishes Inside, a weekly newspaper in the North Center and Lincoln Square neighborhoods. Meanwhile, the Oak Park company is keeping the flagship Chicago Journal, which started in 1999 in the South Loop, West Loop and Near West neighborhoods of Chicago. The Journal company also will continue on with Skyline, the familiar former Lerner weekly in Lincoln Park, Old Town, River North and the Gold Coast.
