    The Washington Examiner announced Tuesday that it will cease to publish as a daily newspaper in June and will become a weekly political magazine instead.

    As a result, the paper has started laying off its employees, reports the Washington City Paper.

    According to a press release, the Examiner in its current form will run until June 14, with a new website launching June 17. The weekly will debut June 20.

    The new product "will offer news, analysis, investigative reporting and commentary on issues affecting national legislation and policy across a number of key areas," the release said.

    “We are very grateful to all those who have supported and appreciated our efforts over the past seven years,” Clarity Media Group president Ryan McKibben said in a statement. “We have enjoyed serving the Washington community and our pride in having done so will always be an important part of our heritage at The Washington Examiner.”
