Ashland paper cuts production to two days a week
The Ashland Daily Press will no longer be printed daily after this week.
Newspaper General Manager David LaPorte made the announcement in a front-page column in Saturday's print and e-editions.
Beginning the week of Sept. 17, the paper will be printed on Wednesdays and Saturdays and delivered to subscribers via the U.S. Postal Service. LaPorte said the newspaper will continue to post breaking news and other news content to its website throughout the week.
The move comes a year after Adams Publishing Group announced that it was closing its printing plant in Ashland and moving publication of its northern Wisconsin papers to a plant in Eau Claire. That change affected 28 jobs in Ashland, most of them part-time.
The Daily Press' website says it has been in publication since 1872.
