PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The Portland Sun will be publishing its last edition next week as the newspaper’s publisher focuses on The Portland Phoenix, an alternative weekly, which his company bought in November.

Publisher Mark Guerringue says staff will join the Phoenix.

He told the Portland Press Herald (https://bit.ly/1DUB1Vp ) that he sees the chance to make the Phoenix a platform for in-depth journalism as well as stories about the arts, entertainment, and culture.

The previous editorial staff of the Phoenix has started DigPortland, a spinoff of the alternative weekly DigBoston.
