SYRACUSE, N.Y., Aug. 29 (UPI) -- Daily newspapers in Syracuse, N.Y. and Harrisburg, Pa., said Tuesday they would cut their delivery schedules beginning in January.
Newhouse Newspapers, owners of The Post-Standard in Syracuse and The Patriot-News in Harrisburg, has already ended daily printing of The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune and its newspapers in Alabama, The New York Times reported Wednesday.
The newspaper in Syracuse will be printed and delivered to homes Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. How to handle the four other days of the week is not completely resolved at this point, said the Syracuse Media Group, which oversees the Post-Standard.
The new production schedule is also not completely set for The Patriot News.
"The plan to reinvent ourselves into a digitally focused organization with a quality print product three days a week is aimed at making sure that kind of work continues long into the future," said the Harrisburg newspaper's president and publisher John Kirkpatrick.
The newspaper announced it would publish a print edition on Sunday, but had not made a firm decision on what to do during the rest of the week.
However, a new schedule would start in January, The Patriot News said.
