YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — A daily newspaper in Ohio has purchased the name and subscriber list of The Vindicator in Youngstown, which is publishing its final edition Aug. 31.

Vindicator owner and general manager Mark Brown said Friday The Tribune Chronicle in Warren also is buying the Vindy.com website and will publish a Mahoning County edition under The Vindicator masthead starting Sept. 1

Brown announced on July 5 that The Vindicator would cease publication because of financial struggles just days after the paper celebrated its 150th anniversary.

Tribune Chronicle publisher Charles Jarvis says The Vindicator edition will include many of that paper’s features. The Tribune Chronicle announced plans for increased Mahoning County coverage and a separate edition after The Vindicator closing announcement.

The Tribune Chronicle’s two county editions are expected to reach more than 50,000 households.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
