Post-Gazette to drop print days

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has announced it will stop publishing the newspaper two days a week.

According to a letter sent to the newspaper’s employee union Wednesday, the newspaper is shrinking its printing schedule as part of a plan to become a digital news organization.

The change will go into effect Aug. 25. Officials have not specified which days will be cut.

Senior Human Resources Manager Linda Guest said in the letter, “the nature of our operations will change substantially.”

The owners of the 232-year-old paper, Ohio-based Block Communications, have not responded to requests for comment.
