Toronto freepaper To.night quietly closes
To.night, the evening freepaper, has published its last in Toronto. According to a post on blogTO, the 5-year-old paper quietly closed after its May 29th issue. Once a weekday daily , at first handed out by eager newsies at various transit locations, and then in scattered news boxes, it was sold in January 2013 to Annex Business Media and has since devolved into a weekly with an entirely different staff. At one point it had blogTO as a content partner and in 2012 cut a deal for sports coverage with Rogers Media's Sportsnet magazine. But To.night was underwhelming in a fierce competitive market that included the four Toronto dailies plus Metro and 24 Hours.
