Nuvo, an alternative newsweekly based in Indianapolis, is cutting its print schedule.

Starting in mid-November, the print edition of the paper will be published every two weeks. The page count will be up, with more advertising. The paper will have more event recommendations and previews and longer features in news, arts, food and entertainment, according to the paper.

“While our overall readership has remained consistent over the past three decades, the number of digital readers continues to increase and print readers decrease, with a good number reading us both online and in print,” said an explanation of the changes from Editor Laura McPhee.

Recently the paper got a grant from the Community Listening and Engagement Fund backed by The News Integrity Initiative, The Democracy Fund, the Knight Foundation and the Lenfest Institute for Journalism. 

The paper used the grant funds to get two platforms, Hearken and GroundSource, that “will help make our journalism more public-powered,” according to the paper.

The paper dates to 1990. “We’re excited about the future and how we will evolve in order to remain Indy’s best source for local, independent journalism for decades to come,” McPhee wrote.
