The brief but prosperous run of FINANCIAL Chronicle comes to an end
Deccan Chronicle group has shut down the print edition of its business newspaper FINANCIAL Chronicle across five cities New Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Chennai. According to media reports not more than a handful of journalists are still working under the publication that once helmed more than a hundred journalists.
Shubhrangshu Roy who was founder, COO & Editor in Chief of FC for more than 8 years took to Facebook to announce the closing of the paper.
Roy said that it was “Premature death from greed and sheer neglect, shy of its 11th! A silent hug to all of you who made it happen in its first eight years!”
FINANCIAL Chronicle was simultaneously launched from Hyderabad and Chennai on 16 April 2008. The Bangalore edition was launched on 25 May, and the Mumbai edition on 20 June. The New Delhi edition was the last one to be launched on 14 April 2009.
