TU closed instead of daily

Free Uruguay weekly Tiempo Uruguayo (TU), launched in December 2005, recently closed down. Last year the paper moved to a twice a week schedule and planned to go daily later in 2007.

Lack of sufficient advertising, however, made the owners decide that after two years of making losses, the paper had to be terminated. Five people lost their job.

The afternoon paper had 20 pages and was distributed in universities, bus terminals, shopping centers, ports and airports. (see previous post)
