The Petoskey News-Review (Michigan) has changed its print schedule. The paper has gone to a Tuesday-through-Saturday schedule, dropping its Monday edition, the paper said. The paper’s website will be updated every day of the week, the paper said.
Friday’s print deadline is now later, which means Friday sports results can get into the Saturday issue. The paper will continue to be mailed to subscribers.
“We also see an advantage to some of our advertisers that now they have Saturday to reach the market of people,” said Christy Lyons, co-general manager of Northern Michigan Review publication group, which includes the News-Review. “For example, restaurants or Realtors may find that Saturday is a good day to reach the market, or visitors to the market that are here for the weekend.”
Along with the schedule changes, the company says it will start printing two dailies, in Sault Ste. Marie and Cheboygan. The News-Review press prints more than 10 outside Northern Michigan products, plus the two new papers, the paper said. The new work will mean the addition of two full-time employees and a few part-time employees, said Michelle Harrington, co-general manager for Northern Michigan Review.
