It has been confirmed that The Glamorgan GEM newspaper, that has served the Vale since 1983, will close.
The news has been confirmed following a meeting between the owners - Tindle Newspapers Ltd - and members of staff.
It comes after the owners of the Vale weekly paper entered a period of consultation with staff - who have been on furlough since the Coronavirus pandemic began.
The paper - which is based in Cowbridge - has six titles in the Vale and Bridgend, and saw all of its staff furloughed and printing suspended at the end of March.
The GEM's six editions cover Barry, Bridgend, Cowbridge, Llantwit Major, Penarth and Porthcawl.
One staff member told Bro Radio, "To be fair, it was quite reasonable from a business perspective, as although it will be a huge loss for the Vale, it was made clear that it is not viable anymore.
"It's disheartening and does make me feel quite fearful for my future career path, but I'm hoping something else might come up with Tindle or elsewhere, which would be great."
It's the latest of Welsh media job cuts, after announcements of job losses at the BBC, Newsquest and Reach PLC in Wales, spelling a very uncertain time for the industry.
Following the announcement, Vale MP Alun Cairns has set up a Facebook page, campaigning to save the paper.
Mr Cairns previously wrote a letter to Tindle Newspapers, asking them to reassure the readers that the paper would return.
Reacting to the news, South Wales Central MS, Andrew RT Davies said, "Over the years the GEM has provided a valuable and important source of news and information for many communities across the Vale of Glamorgan. Will be missed!"
Bro Radio have contacted Tindle Newspapers Ltd for a comment.
