A weekly newspaper is set to cease publication with its publisher citing “changing reader habits and customer needs” for the decision.
It is the fifth weekly title to be closed by TM in recent months – after Bedfordshire on Sunday, the Ely News, Haverhill News and Newmarket News. although the Bedfordshire title has since been replaced by a new free print product called Bedfordshire Midweek.
No staff roles are at risk as a result of the closure of the Observer, which operated as a free companion title to city daily the Bristol Post.
The Bristol Observer was first published as The New Observer in February 1965, and was split into several editions in the 1980s.
A Trinity Mirror spokesman said: “The last edition of the Bristol Observer, a free weekly title, will be November 30th. This decision is driven by changing reader habits and customer needs.
“As we grow our local online audience to new highs, readers will be able to find their local news online at bristolpost.co.uk or in print in the Bristol Post.
“No staff roles will be affected by the closure.”
