Northwest Asian Weekly going online only, ceasing print operations
Asian newspapers in Seattle will undergo dramatic changes in 2023.
Northwest Asian Weekly will cease printing newspapers, and will convert to an online-only model. The Seattle Chinese Post will shutter both print and online operations. The final print editions for the Weekly and the Post will be Jan. 21, 2023.
The Northwest Asian Weekly is a popular English language weekly newspaper that covers Seattle's Asian community. The newspaper says it is moving to online publishing to "adjust to changing times." The paper says the online version will be updated more frequently.
The company also publishes The Seattle Chinese Post, a local Chinese newspaper. While the Weekly will continue online, the Post will cease all operations (print and digital) in 2023.
In a statement on its website, Northwest Asian Weekly explained that it started publishing the Post more than 40 years ago, making it the first Chinese newspaper in the Northwest since 1927. It soon started publishing the Weekly as well. Read the full statement here.
