Greek newspaper To Vima published its last daily print edition on Saturday and will only be available online from now on, other than a weekly Sunday print edition, greekreporter.com revealed.

The decision was taken due to the newspaper's declining circulation. Three years ago, the Sunday print edition had a circulation of 199,364 copies, according to the data from the Association of Owners of Athens Daily Newspapers.

To Vima explained in an editorial published on its website that "online visitors had far outnumbered newsstand buyers--selling 8,000 print issues Thursday, while receiving 82,000 online visitors," Business Week quoted.

The newspaper, which was founded in 1922 and it's owned by Lambrakis Press group, will offer "a completely new electronic" version in January.

Board members of Chilean newspaper La Nacion approved on Friday the closure of the daily's print edition due to circulation decline. The 93-year-old newspaper will be only available online, Milenio reported.

According to media reports, the last print version will circulate on November 28, Efe revealed. However, neither the publishing company nor the government, which owns 69 percent of the newspaper's shares, could confirm the date. "The newspaper will not close," said government spokeswoman Ena Von Baer to Efe. "The government's desire is to keep the newspaper. It has asked the directory that this diary is maintained in a sustainable manner that suits the new time."

However, Chilean President Sebastián Piñera had said before being elected that he wanted to sell or reform the newspaper because it had become a "propaganda machine" used by previous governments to attack their opponents. It was not until a month ago when Daniel Platovsky, president of Empresa Periodistica La Nación, finally announced the closure.

Chilean newspaper La Nación will stop publishing its print edition and will be only available online, 233grados.com reported yesterday. Although the date for the last edition was not revealed, local media said the change would take place in November.

"The daily sells 10,000 copies, out of which we give away a good part, and the site LaNacion.cl has a million visits a month and is funded through advertising," said Daniel Platovsky, president of Empresa Periodistica La Nación, La Tercera quoted. The board members of La Nación are expected to meet in the next few weeks to determine when the print version will stop and whether the site will have a paywall.

"Obviously we will adjust the company to the new project and this could bring a staff reduction," Platovsky said, pointing out that some print employees could be moved to the online newsroom. However, Bio Bio radio station estimated that at least 70 workers would be laid off.

The newspaper was founded in 1917 and, according to its website, 69.26 percent of its shares are owned by the Chilean government.

TNA Media-owned daily The New Age postpones launch of its print edition until October 20, according to an announcement on its website on Tuesday.

This decision of postponement follows "an exhaustive review of readiness" exemplified by the newspaper to launch this month, TimesLive.co.za reported yesterday.

"This delay, while unfortunate, is necessary and will help us deliver a newspaper worthy of our potential readers," Vuyo Mvoko, editor-in-chief of the newspaper stated on the news site. The newspaper had promised its readers comprehensive daily coverage of all of South Africa's nine provinces, which Mvoko explains, "has proved harder to put the systems and people in place to deliver on provincial coverage than we originally anticipated."

Providing reasons for the delay, Mvoko stated, "We have also purchased some of the latest editorial software and other technologies, much of it new to the South African scene. These will need to be tested extensively and over a period of time to guarantee our ability to produce consistent quality on a daily basis. We also have to train our staff on the use and management of our new systems. We are confident that once these processes are complete, we can deliver to our readers an aesthetically pleasing, editorially sound and fresh product that will be relevant to their lives and add to the diversity of voices in our country's media."
