I love newspapers.
I cut my teeth as a radio pup watching local newspaper legends prowl the hallways of courthouses in our area. I was in awe of their connections, their knowledge, and their attention to detail.
One of America's great newspapers, the Pittsburgh Post~Gazette, this week, started publishing only three days a week. The company is putting its oomph into digital and its web site.
Sorry, but I love that thump of the newspaper on the front porch in the morning, and as a kid, I really looked forward to when the afternoon newspaper would arrive.
I hope it works and the PPG will be around for a long time to come. Unfortunately, the phrase that no one ever cut their way to survival comes to mind.
When you publish only three days a week, you are getting people used to not having that daily newspaper on the doorstep, and they might learn to live without you.
