Washington Examiner Ends Local News Coverage

Will remain online with a weekly print edition focused on national issues


The Washington Examiner ended local news coverage Friday, leaving behind an eight-year legacy of public service and watchdog journalism.

Readers will remember the print edition for its aggressive coverage of crime and transportation issues, its local and regional enterprise stories and its dedication to government accountability.

"I have always been impressed by how smart our readers are and how thoughtful and committed they are to local news," said Kytja Weir, who has covered transportation for more than four years. "In covering the Metro beat, I've been impressed by how informed people are about the system."
