CMBE said it will no longer publish its free online summary of industry news headlines.
The Vermont-based company told subscribers this week that 2007 is the 20th anniversary of CMBE News, which started as a monthly mailing and has seen life in the form of faxes, e-mails and hyperlink headlines.
"In recent years, our workload has expanded as we've added additional businesses, including a mapping company, a local nonprofit radio station and a natural beef business," it stated. "Our flagship company, CMBE Inc., continues to grow as we serve clients worldwide with consulting services and specialized broadcast systems." It said it plans to grow those businesses and must cut certain other projects including the free news service.
"We'll still be here, just not in your mailbox every day," CMBE told readers.
