mX newspaper to close

In media news just in, it has been reported that mX - the Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane commuter newspaper - will be closed by publisher News Corp.

"The decision is a reflection of the changing reading habits of commuters who now turn to their mobile phones and tablets on their way to and from work," News Corp said in a statement.
"News will continue to invest in our extensive suite of print and digital products, which are purchased and read by millions of Australians every day."

The newspaper, which is distributed on train platforms and other CBD locations in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, has been the highlight of many a train trip for me back in the day I was taking trains to work and smartphones weren't around yet.

I am sure lots of faithful readers will miss the freebie on their commute home, and it's always a sad day when a print publication gets the axe.
