London—Guardian News & Media announced that beginning in October it will cease publishing the international editions of the Guardian and Observer newspapers. The international editions are currently printed in New York, Frankfurt, Madrid, Cyprus and Malta.
The company said it will continue to produce digital editions of the publications. It also plans to launch editions for the iPad and Kindle.
“Our international print editions have been a valued part of what we do for a number of years; but, as a result of the structural changes affecting all printed newspapers, we have been steadily reducing the amount of copies we publish outside the U.K. since 2010 due to reasons of demand and cost,” Adam Freeman, executive director-commercial for Guardian News & Media, said in a statement.
