Maariv Daily Newspaper Fails To Print Sunday Edition in Israel

The Israeli daily newspaper Maariv did not publish a Sunday edition.

Workers were told by owner Shlomo Ben Tzvi not to come to work on Saturday night, the Times of Israel reported. The on-line edition was published on Maariv’s NRG website, however.

It is not known if the newspaper will resume printing on Monday. The newspaper has suffered a decline in readership and advertising revenue in recent years.

Haaretz reported Friday that the newspaper could be up for sale. It was sold a year and a half ago to Ben Tzvi, who owns the Makor Rishon company, which publishes the Makor Rishon newspaper.

Ben Tzvi was scheduled to appear in Jerusalem District Court on Sunday to request protection from creditors. His company reportedly owes $10 million to writers and other employees.
