Skip to comments.3 Philly-Area Dailies Will Drop Saturday Paper (Dinosaur Media DeathWatch™)
Posted on 01/31/2009 12:34:37 PM PST by abb
Three Calkins Media newspapers in suburban Philadelphia will stop publishing Saturday print editions next week.
The Bucks County Courier Times, The Intelligencer of Doylestown and the Burlington County Times in Willingboro, N.J., will continue to publish Saturday editions online.
The newspapers announced the change Saturday. It goes into effect Feb. 7.
Publisher Michael Scobey says the move is being made to control costs and provide expanded local and national news and sports coverage.
Scobey says the change is a return to the traditional publishing schedule. The Saturday print editions were introduced about five years ago.
He says the market no longer supports the additional day of print publication. The online Saturday edition will contain all the information the print version had.

Birds everywhere will suffer. Oh the humanity.
The Kalin sisters may have to cut back on the Scotch in the newsroom.
You’re gonna have to clue me in on that one, Doc.
But I do my painting and fishing on Saturday.
Imagining Newspapers of the Future
That’s what the free weeklies are for.
Saturday is a terrible day to publish a paper. Monday and Tuesday not much better. I think the Detroit papers got it right with publishing on the days when ads actually sell.
Later for a bunch of stupid liberal “journalists”.
Nothing happens on Tuesday any way
Daddy What’s This?
Its a newspaper son, that’s how the left used to spread their lies!
Ha ha ha. Good news to enjoy over the weekend.
What is my puppy going to pee on?
Will anyone notice? Will anyone care?
Recession rocks Hollywood’s showbiz papers
I get the Burlington County Times, so yes I will notice, but no I don’t care. Very weak local newspaper leaning heavily to the left. Saturday edition can be read in its entirety in less than 10 minutes.
Good fire starting material for our fireplace on cold Saturday’s like today.
