Cape Breton Post will stop publishing print editions on Mondays
Saltwire's four daily newspapers in Atlantic Canada will stop publishing on Mondays.
The changes will start October 17th at the Cape Breton Post, Chronicle Herald, The Guardian (Charlottetown) and The Telegram(St. John’s).
SaltWire says because of the changes, they will expand their weekend papers.
“While readers accustomed to holding a physical Monday newspaper in their hands will no longer be able to do so, the four publications will continue to produce digital editions on Mondays featuring local stories, opinion pieces and other content.”
“What we’re looking to do is to expand the Saturday (paper) with some added puzzles and comic strips and things of that nature, so the reader who chooses either to buy it on a Saturday, Sunday or Monday will have an opportunity to pick it up and have something more than just today’s standard weekend edition.”
Saltwire says rising costs are to blame for the changes.
They say the Monday edition of the four newspapers generates the least revenue.
