California Local Newspapers to End Monday Papers

7 Dec

Media News Group owned local newspapers in California are planning to cut costs by stop printing the Monday news. Papers like The Oakland Tribune, Fremont Argus and the Hayward Daily Review would only stop subscribed deliveries whilst making Monday newspapers still available in stands. In other cases such as the Vacaville Reporter and the Vallejo Times-Herald would stop printing newspapers altogether on Monday. This strategy aims to move readers toward its online papers.

Truly printed papers are at a huge disadvantage compared to e-news. The costs of printing can be a burden when nowadays news can be published on free digital paper. I don’t know why any of the papers would cut cost by getting rid of the Monday paper, it just seems rather random. There could be other ways to be more cost efficient without not publishing news for an entire day.
