After launching less than a year and a half ago, paid digital content service Ongo is shutting down. The company, which aggregates news from around 40 publishers, presents it in a user-friendly, add-free format, and charges readers a subscription for it, will shut shop by the end of this month, reported Nieman Lab yesterday.

Ongo’s closure represents a bad bet made by some of the traditional news industry’s biggest players: The New York Times, Gannett and The Washington Post each contributed $4m to the company when it was launched.
