Alibi ends publications, new newspaper emerges

The Weekly Alibi has ended its 28-year-reign as Albuquerque’s alternative weekly publication, but that doesn’t mean the city will now be without an alt-weekly.

Several weeks after announcing that he would be purchasing the Alibi, City Councilor Pat Davis said he will instead be backing a new alt-weekly publication named The Paper after the Alibi sale had fallen through.

Davis said after the sale was off, Alibi employees expressed a desire to continue their work.

“Some of the key staff and reporters reached out to us and said ‘You know, we really need to have this voice in Albuquerque,’ so we’re going to build a new paper,” Davis said.

He said fans of the Alibi will see many similarities with the new publication but he said The Paper will have a greater focus on news coverage, both in-depth and online with daily content.

“In The Paper we’ll have more investigative, in-depth, sort of behind the scenes coverage,” Davis said.

Davis did not say which of the Alibi staff members will be making the leap to the new publication, but Tierna Unruh-Enos, the current associate Alibi publisher will be taking over as editor.

The first issue of The Paper will publish during the first week of October.
