FORT WAYNE, Ind. — The News-Sentinel of Fort Wayne has announced it will soon stop publishing its own newspaper editions and convert primarily to an online publication.

The News-Sentinel has been Fort Wayne’s afternoon newspaper under a business partnership with the Journal Gazette morning newspaper. The News-Sentinel says it will have designated pages produced by its staffers that will be included within the Journal Gazette’s printed editions while focusing more on its digital content. A date for the change wasn’t announced.

Fort Wayne Newspapers CEO Mike Christman says The News-Sentinel will reach a wider audience while retaining its independent voice.

The News-Sentinel traces its newspaper roots back more than 180 years. Its staff won the Pulitzer Prize for local reporting for its coverage of severe flooding that hit Fort Wayne in 1982.
