Mark Brown, 60, of Boardman, Ohio, general manager of The Vindicator, stands in the paper’s conference room surrounded by historic front pages of its 150-year history on Friday, Aug. 2, 2019, in Youngstown, Ohio. The pages show U.S. claiming victory in the Gulf War, the 1969 moon landing, the first Chevy rolling off the lines at Lordstown, Ohio. The room is where he announced to his staff that the paper would be closing on Aug. 31. (Stephanie Strasburg/Post-Gazette)
