The satirical weekly will start circulating a free print edition in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, on Sept. 2. In addition to carrying stories published on its Web site, The Onion will print local reviews and calendar listings, the same type of content for which City Pages, an AAN member in the same market, is known. The Onion president Sean Mills claims that readers of the humor paper are significantly younger than readers of alternative weeklies. According to the Star Tribune, The Onion is looking next to start papers in San Francisco, Boston and Austin, Texas.
