Flint Journal, Saginaw News, Bay City Times Reduce to Three Days a Week
Effective June 1st, three Booth Newspapers, the Flint Journal, Saginaw News and the Bay City Times will cease being daily newspapers and will instead only publish on Thursday, Friday and Sundays. There will also be an effort by these publications to increase their local news coverage.
Booth Newspapers had announced March 23rd that these changes were in place, along with the elimination of the print version of the Ann Arbor News.
The remaining Booth Newspapers have no current plan to change their distribution days, instead focusing on restructuring internally to improve profitability.
