Up editors deny closure rumours

Mon 1 Mar 2004 In: New Zealand Daily News

The editors of gay newspaper Up moved last week to dispel rumours that the paper was closing down after a split from its publisher, AMA Media. "It's just amazing how fast word can spread," says co-editor Aaron Hailwood. "But we're not going anywhere. We are just returning to publishing the paper ourselves after difficulties with AMA Media." AMA Media took over publication of the fledgling gay newspaper in December 2003. Hailwood and co-editor Andy Boreham say they plan to return the newspaper to “something fun”.
