Newspapers Keep Eliminating Print Days—They Say It’s For the Best

From a Washington Post story by Elahe Izadi headlined “Newspapers keep eliminating print days. They say it’s for the best.”:

When she was a child, Sandy Auburn’s father read the comics to her; eventually, she learned to read them to him. As an adult, she developed another newsprint ritual with her husband, swapping sections of her local Ohio newspaper back and forth with him over breakfast. She especially enjoyed a recent series on Black-owned businesses in town.

But now the local paper is throwing a wrench into her rhythms. After more than 100 years of publication, Ohio’s Akron Beacon Journal has stopped printing on Mondays, when it instead offers readers a digital version of the newspaper.
