Free Press to become weekly publication

The Grand Junction Free Press will cut back the number of days it publishes and become a weekly newspaper starting March 5.

Free Press publisher Valerie Smith announced the change Friday in a news release, acknowledging the current economy played a part in the decision.

Smith said the newspaper will print every Friday and update its Web site frequently with local and regional news.

The reduction in publication days comes almost a year to the date after the Free Press announced it would publish only three days a week.

Prior to that, the paper had published Monday through Friday since its inception in 2003.

The Free Press is owned by Colorado Mountain News Media, which is a subsidiary of Reno, Nev.-based Swift Newspapers Inc.
