Flint Journal - Change To Semiweekly

Change To Semiweekly

On June 1, 2009, the Journal and its sister papers, The Saginaw News and The Bay City Times, reduced publishing to three times a week—Thursday, Friday and Sunday, while increasing their interactive media capabilities. The changes came after the three papers laid off 35% of their staff in March 2009. The papers are printed at the Booth-owned Valley Publishing Co. printing plant in Monitor Township, near Bay City.

The Journal added a Tuesday print edition starting on March 23, 2010, bringing the number of publishing days a week to four. Unlike the other three daily editions, Tuesdays were originally "news stand only;" however, since June 7, 2011, the Tuesday edition has also been delivered to subscribers. If Detroit's suburbs are not counted, Flint is the fifth-largest city in the United States, and second largest in Michigan, without a daily newspaper.

Famous quotes containing the word change:

    Believe me, if all those endearing young charms,
    Which I gaze on so fondly today,
    Were to change by tomorrow, and fleet in my arms,
    Like fairy-gifts fading away.
    Thomas Moore (1779–1852)
