Palo Alto Weekly to Combine Print Editions, Launch 'E-Daily'

Late next month the Weekly will begin publishing a single weekly print edition every Friday and a new electronic edition, "Express," Monday through Friday, publisher Bill Johnson announced last week. (The Weekly is unique among AAN members in that it currently produces two print products each week, one on Wednesday and one on Friday.) "Our vision is to increasingly rely on our website and our daily electronic edition to provide local news and sports coverage, and to use our newspaper to present in-depth and feature coverage, plus summaries of the week's news," he says. The move reflects changing reading preferences and the increased prominence of the internet, while offering the added benefit of reducing the paper's carbon footprint, Johnson says.
