London-based free financial newspaper City A.M. is set to resume its print edition, 18 months after the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic forced its suspension.

City A.M. has continued to publish news on its website during the pandemic but its print edition is due to return on Monday 20 September.

The last print issue was published on 20 March 2020, three days before the first coronavirus lockdown was announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Press Gazette reported that staff were told on Thursday (2 September) and the publication spoke to City A.M. chief executive Jens Torpe about the move.

He said “now is the right time to come back” and that he was “optimistic” considering that London Underground usage had continued to rise in August, even though it was the traditionally quieter summer holiday period.
