Emmis was unable to find co-sponsors for the event to share the costs, though it did not say how much the show costs to produce.
"It's a very expensive event to put on, and we've always made it a free event," Emmis' David Edgar told the paper. "This year, because of the economy, everybody has been having difficulties, and we found it impossible to put together the funding it takes to put on this event."
The Star does point out that Emmis isn't alone, noting that Marsh Supermarkets, RCA, and SBC have also pulled out of Indianapolis events due to economic pressures.
