In response to a continued shift toward digital consumption, The Daily News Journal is announcing a change in print delivery frequency — beginning March 19.
The Daily News Journal will cease home delivery on Saturdays and replace this service with a full digital replica of the newspaper, filled with local news, advertising and features such as comics and puzzles.
The new model means our subscribers will receive newspapers, delivered to their homes, six days a week with a digital newspaper available every day.
“Our commitment to local news remains steadfast, but the platforms on which people are consuming news continue to evolve. We too must evolve,” said Gary Estwick, editor of The Daily News Journal.
“What was once solely a daily newspaper has transformed into a digital site, mobile app, social media platforms, multimedia and more.”
The Saturday digital replica, or e-Edition, will have the same look and news as the printed newspaper.
The digital format includes additional features, including the ability to clip and share articles and adjust text size.
In addition, subscribers will now enjoy access to the USA TODAY Network’s full suite of e-Editions from across the country, as well as ad-free access to the USA TODAY Crossword puzzle. This change is occurring across our network.
All print subscribers of The Daily News Journal have full digital access to news updates throughout the day, subscriber-only stories, video and audio features and more. Subscribers also have 24/7 access to obituaries, legal notices and classifieds.
News and sales staffing at The Daily News Journal will not change. However, our staff will be even better aligned toward digital news delivery.
Delivery times for the other days of the week will remain unchanged.
“Our newspaper is a vital part of our community,” Estwick said. “Now, more than ever, it’s critical to support local news with subscriptions and advertising.”
