The Forward, a 121-year-old Jewish-American publication in New York, is ending its print operations, the New York Post reports. The historic newspaper—which will maintain a digital presence—also plans to lay off about 40 percent of its editorial staff, including Editor-in-Chief Jane Eisner. According to the Post, the paper will continue to put out an English-language and a Yiddish-language edition online. “The Forward is taking the next step in making our brand more relevant to our readers and more connected to their lives,” said publisher and CEO Rachel Fishman Feddersen. “We are announcing that this spring The Forward will complete its evolution from what was once a print-focused publisher to become a digitally focused publication.” Other laid-off staffers include Executive Editor Dan Friedman, Digital Director David Goldiner, Design Director Kurt Hoffman and marketing and Kathleen Chambard, vice president of marketing.
