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.
Rumors of more McClatchy layoffs heating up
May the best man win.
We get the Bergen Record. NJ. The only things worth reading are the letters they print blasting them for bias against the President and the republicans.
The county is as corrupt as can be. Every week another indictment of another dem politico.
Yet the editorial page is filled with slavish love for O.
“Daddy Whats This?
Its a newspaper son, thats how the left used to spread their lies!”
Thi isn’t Bill is it?
I lived in Oakland until 50 years ago. The Ramapo valley is beautiful, and in those days, and for decades after, Bergen County was the home of liberal Republicans and RIBOs.
Newspaper Execs Launch Group to ‘Fight Back’
The corruption here is breathtaking. And the dem voters love every minute of it. They don’t even want their crooks to resign. No embarrassment at all.
The majority of the elected officials here are dems. i don’t know what happened to the republicans as we are new here. Just 18 mos.
That seems to be a growing symptom of the whole state. It just blows my mind that as our property taxes skyrocket and the blatant corruption increases, the same clowns keep getting re-elected.
This is nothing? (Yes, it was on a Tuesday)
Newspapers are the opposite of lawyers. Multiple newspapers in a town are always in a death-struggle. Conversely, one lawyer in a town will starve to death. Two will get rich.
It’s three sisters named Calkin that own these papers.
Why Saturday? Why not Tuesday like the Postal Service?
how long before every day is one?
