Bonnier ‘integrates’ City Stockholm

City Stockholm, the former free daily from Swedish publishing house Bonnier, will be ‘integrated’ in the Bonnier Magazines group from August 2009 on. In the process 33 jobs will be lost.

Stockholm City was launched in 2002 to compete with Metro in Stockholm. In 2006 editions for Gothenburg and Skåne (Malmö/Lund) were added. The Gothenburg edition closed after little more than a year in 2007.

City Stockholm was converted into a three-days-a-week (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday) paper in September 2008. In April of this year the Wednesday edition was terminated.

In 2008 local City editions for Helsingborg (successor of Xtra! Helsingborg, launched in 2007) and Landskrona were added. These editions are published in cooperation with Helsingborgs Dagblad. Also the Malmö/Lund edition is still published.
