Sign of End Times? New Orleans Paper Going Paperless?
New Orleans' Times-Picayune daily newspaper will cut back to three dailys a week in the Fall, printing editions only on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, according to reports from the Wall Street Journal on Thursday.
The news hit headlines across the country today as the 175-year-old Times-Picayune will, for the most part, go paperless.
According to the Wall Street Journal report, the change will include "staff reductions, centralizing operations and merging print and digital into a single operation" as part of the Times-Picayune massive scale back.
As a major market daily newspaper has planned changes, many now question smaller market newspapers and as to whether or not there is a similar plan in the works to cut printing days and costs.
Officials with American Press in Lake Charles and Southwest Daily News in Sulphur could not be reached for comment on the matter.
