Daily Press cuts Mondays out of press run
In an effort to cut costs, the Montrose Daily Press will no longer print a Monday edition, starting next week, Publisher Stephen Woody said.
The paper with a circulation of about 6,000 will still offer news content Mondays in an online edition. Health features that ran Monday can be found in Tuesday’s newspapers.
Customers will receive extensions of paid subscriptions.
“It’s really not a readership issue; it’s a revenue issue,” Woody said, tying the cutbacks to decreased revenue from advertising. He said no editorial layoffs are planned.
The Daily Press increased printing from five to six days a week in 1996 and to seven days June 2007, Woody said. “When the economy comes back, we’ll be back. This is a suspension, not a cessation.”
