publishing schedule

by Jim Chisholm

Despite the predictions of doom-mongers, at every point of media evolution, newspapers have continued to respond - eventually - to each new challenge, while having navigated the roller coaster of the economic cycles.

The oldest newspaper in Indiana will begin delivering in the mornings instead of later in the day, and will also close its Monday edition in order to publish on Saturdays instead, The Associated Press reported today.

The changes at the Vincennes Sun-Commercial will begin Dec. 11, and were implemented because readers and advertisers prefer getting their news earlier in the day, as well as having an edition on Saturday, publisher Rob Eilts said.

The newspaper already publishes a Sunday edition, and will be able to offer readers coverage of Friday night sports the first thing Saturday morning, Editor Gayle Robbins told the AP in an article published by the Chicago Tribune.

The newspaper's online edition has a closed paywall. When readers click on a headline, they are directed to a login page or asked to select a subscription service: US$1 per day, $5.70 per month, $17.10 for three months, $34.20 for six months and $68.40 for a year.

Two newspapers in upstate New York have eliminated one day each from their daily production schedules, Editor & Publisher reported Wednesdy.

The Tonawanda News and The Journal-Register of Medina, have dropped one day from their publishing schedules.

The News dropped its Monday edition on July 6th and now publishes Tuesday through Saturday. The Journal-Register has stopped its Tuesday paper and now publishes four days a week - Monday and Wednesday through Friday.

Both papers are published by Greater Niagara Newspapers, a division of Community Newspaper Holdings Inc. who also owns owns two other papers in the region -- the Lockport Union-Sun & Journal and the Niagara Gazette.

"I can't speak for the Tonawanda newspaper, but we just felt [cutting back one edition] was the correct action for our organization to take from a financial standpoint," Diane Crowe, publisher of The Journal-Register said.

Six-day publication at the Lockport and Niagara papers will remain. Sunday editions at regional papers in the Tonawanda, Lockport, and Niagara will also be unaffected.
