- The editorial board of the UWM Post--the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's independent, unofficial, student-run newspaper--announced this week that the paper may temporarily halt publication this November and resume as a student-subsidized publication next fall.
- Declining advertising revenue over the past three years has left the paper, which prints and distributes 10,000 copies every Monday during the fall and spring semesters, nearly broke.
- A fee of $3 per student would more than cover the paper's costs, but the funds wouldn't be available until next fall.
