Beginning in March, the Post Register daily newspaper will not publish any more on Mondays. The reason is cost-saving: Evidently, to judge from Publisher Roger Plothow‘s piece today on the change (behind a pay wall), it was that or lay off employees. And since the paper will be continuing to update its website on Mondays, that seems the rational choice.
He points out that the Post-Register was a six-day paper – no Saturday publication – until 1996. Might be interesting to know (Plothow doesn’t say) why the ax fell on the Monday, rather than the Saturday, edition. At a guess: The ad picture penciled out better than way.Share on Facebook
