McClatchy is putting two additional papers onto its “Digital Saturdays” plan, which drops the Saturday print edition and results in digital-only journalism on that day, Poynter reported.
The Durham Herald Sun (North Carolina) and the Bellingham Herald (Washington) cease Saturdays print editions starting the first week of July. They join the Myrtle Beach Sun News (South Carolina), which stopped its Saturday print in April.
“You’re going to get all the same content that you got before,” said Sara Glines, McClatchy’s Carolinas & East regions president and publisher. “You’re just going to get it in a different way.”
Extra comics and puzzles will show up in the Friday and Sunday print papers. The Saturday e-edition will include more international, national, sports and entertainment material than the Saturday print edition had, according to McClatchy, Poynter reported.
