WAMU shuts down DCist; it’s the “death of a local institution,” states NEWS4 DC

by | Feb 23, 2024

DCist.com, “one of the most beloved local news sites in the District,” has been shuttered by WAMU. It was “the death of a local institution,” states NEWS4 DC.

According to a website popup message: “Thank you for visiting and supporting DCist. Since 2018, it has been a part of WAMU 88.5, the Washington region’s public media and NPR member station. As of February 23, the site will no longer publish new content. Please visit WAMU.org for local news and programming.”

WAMU is shutting down DCist to refocus on audio-first “multiplatform” stories, states management of the public radio station. Fifteen employees were laid off, the WAMU union posted on X, adds NEWS4 DC.
