Oregonian newspaper reduces home-delivery schedule

PORTLAND (AP) — The Oregonian newspaper says it is shifting its emphasis to digital delivery of news, that home delivery will be reduced, and some staff will lose their jobs. (You can read a fuller story here.)

The state’s largest newspaper will still be printed daily and distributed to metro areas. But home delivery will be reduced from seven days to Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, and a bonus edition on Saturday. Home delivery subscribers will be able to read a digital edition of the paper online seven days a week.

Publisher N. Christian Anderson III said in a statement published online Thursday that the company will be relaunched Oct. 1 as the Oregonian Media Group.

The Oregonian is owned by Advance Publications, Inc. Similar steps have been taken at other Advance newspapers.

The Willamette Week newspaper in Portland has a blog post on the changes at The Oregonian.
