Weekly axed

ICI, Sun Media's French language arts weekly in Montreal, is toast.

Its last press run is today, the Montreal Gazette is reporting.

The Gazette says Sun Media pulled the plug on ICI because it had no hope of making money from the weekly, which has about 90,000 readers per week. It published in the shadow of Voir, with about 500,000 readers.

The Gazette says ICI's columnists will shift to the 24 Heures and websites. Local arts news and listings will be printed in the Thursday printed edition of 24 Heures.

Another one bites the dust . . .
