McClatchy’s daily newspapers will stop printing Saturday issues and move them to digital-only editions by the end of 2020, according to a company earnings call yesterday.
Last month, McClatchy announced Washington paper The News Tribune and The Olympian will cease publishing on Saturdays starting January 25, 2020.
In place of a Saturday edition, The News Tribune and The Olympian will produce Weekend Editions that include expanded coverage on Friday and Sunday, with comics, puzzles and TV listings.
The Fresno Bee and the Modesto Bee will stop printing Saturday editions starting January 11.
McClatchy owns more than 30 publications in 14 states.
On Wednesday, the company announced circulation revenue in the third quarter had exceeded ad revenue for the first time in its 162-year history.
