SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The San Francisco Bay Guardian weekly newspaper is shutting down after being a leading progressive publication in the Northern California city for 48 years.

San Francisco Media Co., which has published the paper since 2012, says in a brief statement published on the weekly’s website that the last issue will be published Wednesday.

By Tuesday night the weekly’s Facebook page had been shut down and only the publisher’s statement remained on its website.

The statement didn’t say what prompted the closure but publisher Glenn Zuehls tells the San Francisco Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1xQPCdF ) the weekly is closing because of financial problems.

The Bay Guardian had been publishing stories about progressive San Francisco since 1966, when Bruce Brugmann and his wife, Jean Dibble, founded the paper.
