Newspapers cutting back on delivery days

20090330_MIDN.jpg If I blogged every time a newspaper reduced the days it published, I would’ve been a fairly busy man. Thankfully (and sadly), the Associated Press has compiled all of these papers in a list.

The lengthy list details publications that cut days since last year. It doesn’t include newspapers that have closed entirely (such as the Rocky Mountain News and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer).

That list includes the Detroit Free Press and Detroit News (an Enterprise-Record sister paper), which dropped four publishing weekdays starting today. I’m interested to see how that unfolds. There was higher than anticipated demand for their e-Editions this morning.

It’s a reminder of the industry that is in great flux.

In other news, cartoon journalist Brenda Starr has been furloughed.
