The Daily Observer goes out of print

The Daily Observer Newspaper will print its final copy tomorrow, the company has announced.

It comes less than two months after it cut the publication days from six to three.

The company says it is going electronic and will continue to produce a “free paper” exclusively online.

The cash-strapped entity said in a public announcement today that it fast-tracked the e-paper because of an eviction notice it recently received.

Liquidators told management to move out of the former R. Allen Stanford building by the end of October.

The shutting down of its print brings an end to the newspaper business in Antigua as we know it.

The Daily Observer began by fax and emerged to be the only daily in the Eastern Caribbean at one point.

It has been controversial based on its friendly reporting on the main opposition United Progressive Party and its aggression to the ruling Antigua Barbuda Labour Party.

  1. “If your own don’t kill you, you will live forever”

    Badmind, greed, envy & jealousy from family is the root cause. Bad management is the catalyst.

    At least Winston isn’t here to witness this. It would have broken him.

  2. Family fight and gaston alp …but observer can never lock down …if ever this newspaper and observer lock down antigua would be in serious trouble

    • Why don’t you bail them out?? You’re NOT even concerned about the employees. Just chatting pure political fart. Observer still owes APUA a hefty sum. You think the average person can get such a nice treatment from APUA?? Hell no. Would Be disconnected swiftly. Stop playing politics and encourage responsible behaviour by the entity.

      Winston fought long and hard for his “baby” and now look how his own flesh and blood have led to its demise.

      • Such bitterness is juvenile. The catalyst is the power play eviction and the changing media environment. While you are all channeling Winston remember he was a mortal with all the flaws that that entails. Observer will evolve as all entities must and continue to serve ALL the people of A&B as he envisioned. If you aren’t part of the solution you are part of the problem.

  3. While OMG is in their evolution process I do hope they pay APUA what the owe them. The poor man light get cut for under $100.00 while OMG owes APUA over $1, 000, 000.00 and still running.
