The last paper edition is expected to be on Saturday March 26. Its sister paper, The Independent on Sunday, will likely publish its final issue on March 20. Evgeny Lebedev, owner of the 30-year-old title, said: “The newspaper industry is changing, and that change is being driven by readers. They’re showing us that the future is digital. "This decision preserves the Independent brand and allows us to continue to invest in the high quality editorial content that is attracting more and more readers to our online platforms. “The Independent has always been a pioneering newspaper with a track record of innovation. It has a proud heritage as Britain’s first truly independent national quality title. "My family bought and invested heavily in The Independent because we believe in world-class quality journalism, and this move secures the future of these vitally important editorial values.” Around 30 jobs will be created at Independent online, reports said, while some staff will move to their stablemate publication, the i, which is being sold to Johnston Press. Never been a reader myself, have looked at their website... so eventually will go all print media. Daily Telegraph sooner than some if the downward death spiral in quality isn't halted soon.
