star-ledgerThe only daily newspaper for our area could be history at the end of this year: Advance Publications has threatened to close The Star Ledger if it doesn’t get concessions from the paper’s unions.

The Star Ledger reported the demand yesterday and said that union officials had rejected the ultimatum.

Advance Publications owns a large number of daily and weekly newspapers across the United States, as well as glossy magazines like Bon Appetit, Brides and Vogue. Advance has been shuttering many of its newspapers in recent years, or scaling back their publication to just three days a week. In 2008, Advance offered a buyout to editorial staff at the Star Ledger to stop losses there; 40% of the news staff took the buyout and many went on to found NewJerseyNewsroom.com.

Advance has been its attention here to digital media through NJ.com. While The Star Ledger operates out of Newark, that company has its base in Morristown.
