COVID-19 SHUTS DOWN MINDANAO DAILY MIRROR, Mindanao’s first daily newspaper

The day has come

The Mindanao Daily Mirror is printing its last issue tomorrow, July 3. COVID-19 hit us hard and management has decided to close down the paper.

As the Mirror writes 30, I want to thank all of you who journeyed with us in our long and short run. The Mirror was first published in 1950 and is the first daily newspaper in Mindanao. It came under new management on October 1, 2018 and we had long-term plans that would honor the paper’s status as an institution in Davao City.
I am thankful to management for seeing us through the dark days of the pandemic, but in the end the harsh realities prevailed.
I am especially thankful to our team which worked hard to keep the Mirror fresh and relevant. It’s been an honor. I’m sure we will be bumping into each other frequently as we continue the work of journalism.
Thank you all.
