FZ.com says farewell
FZ.com ended its two-year run at the close of business today and the site bid farewell to its readers, after struggling to establish itself in the crowded online news business.Set up as a lightweight sister site to The Edge, and in preparation for a daily newspaper to be called FZ Daily, the site became redundant after its application for a newspaper publishing licence was rejected in March and when its publishers took over The Malaysian Insider last month. » Edge buys Insider
FZ staff were told last month they would be redeployed within the Edge group, which includes The Edge weekly, Financial Daily, Personal Money and Edge Online. Only a few would move to the Insider.
FZ’s final front page today carried two stories on conservation in Penang by bureau chief Himanshu Bhatt and reporter A. Sangeetha.
