The fortnightly Evanston RoundTable newspaper announced in its edition published today that it plans to cease publication as a print newspaper with its next edition, scheduled for Nov. 14.

The paper, launched 21 years ago, says it plans to upgrade its website, with a new online version of the publication to be launched “within the next four to six weeks.”

The RoundTable cited declining advertising revenue, the bane of numerous print publications across the country, as the reason for shuttering its print edition.

Bill Smith is the editor and publisher of Evanston Now.
