The Providence Business News is pausing the printing of its physical print product and will publish its weekly paper online as a digital edition.
A story on its website states, “This marks the first time in the 34-year history of the paper that a print edition has not been mailed out to readers. The action is a response to the health-emergency crisis caused by COVID-19, as well the economic pressures that have accompanied the disease.
“The paper’s subscriber-only content is also temporarily free for access.
