The article reports that the never-say-die print edition of Radar has lost confidence of its investors, private equity firm Integrity Multimedia Co. (IMC). Editor in chief Maer Roshan has highlighted the fact that the Radar is dealing with independent investors and that the market is seen, which caused investors to fear about the future. Accordingly, when Radar relaunched in mid-2006, Yusef Jackson of IMC has publicly promised five years of funding.
