Flint Journal - Change To Semiweekly

Change To Semiweekly

On June 1, 2009, the Journal and its sister papers, The Saginaw News and The Bay City Times, reduced publishing to three times a week—Thursday, Friday and Sunday, while increasing their interactive media capabilities. The changes came after the three papers laid off 35% of their staff in March 2009. The papers are printed at the Booth-owned Valley Publishing Co. printing plant in Monitor Township, near Bay City.

The Journal added a Tuesday print edition starting on March 23, 2010, bringing the number of publishing days a week to four. Unlike the other three daily editions, Tuesdays were originally "news stand only;" however, since June 7, 2011, the Tuesday edition has also been delivered to subscribers. If Detroit's suburbs are not counted, Flint is the fifth-largest city in the United States, and second largest in Michigan, without a daily newspaper.

Famous quotes containing the words change to and/or change:

    —No, no thou hast not felt the lapse of hours!
    For what wears out the life of mortal men?
    ‘Tis that from change to change their being rolls;
    ‘Tis that repeated shocks, again, again,
    Exhaust the energy of strongest souls
    And numb the elastic powers.
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

    Change your opinions, keep to your principles; change your leaves, keep intact your roots.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
