I’m a career newspaperman. I feel the emotional tug. My father was a printer. I get it. If you care about journalism, you’ve got to do this.

John Paton, CEO, Digital First Media, to the New York Times about reducing the number of days each week that newspapers will publish. Newspapers Cut Days From Publishing Week.

Here’s the trend in a nutshell:

Almost two weeks ago, The Times-Picayune in New Orleans, which is owned by Advance Publications, announced that it would cut back its print schedule to just three days a week. Within hours, its sister publications The Birmingham News, The Press-Register of Mobile and The Huntsville Times followed suit. Four days later, Postmedia announced that three of its papers, The Calgary Herald, The Edmonton Journal and The Ottawa Citizen would all eliminate their Sunday editions.
