The Rapid City Journal (South Dakota) is going to a five-day printing schedule starting March 7, the paper announced. Lee Enterprises owns the paper.

Papers will be delivered to subscribers, racks and dealers Tuesday through Saturday in the new arrangement. The Saturday paper will be a bigger weekend edition with the inserts, coupons and comics readers are used to getting in Sunday's paper.

"The Rapid City Journal will be delivered using dependable carriers in our city market and through the U.S. Postal Service in outlying areas," said Journal Publisher Matt Tranquill. "People who only receive Sunday’s paper will just start receiving it a day earlier."

The paper’s website and electronic replica edition will continue to be updated and available every day.

"To make sure the Rapid City Journal is here for the next 100 years, this is a decision that had to be made," Tranquill said.
