Last week, we noted some recent announcements from college newspapers cutting their Friday editions. Here’s the letter from the editor of the Ball State Daily News.
Samantha Zilal puts the best possible spin on the decision:
Suspending Friday publication is not a death sentence, and our Friday papers may be back someday. As the country struggles financially this is something that will tide us over until the economy bounces back.
Instead of sitting in a corner lamenting the glory days of print media, we’re going to do something we should have done a long time ago: Use our Web site for what it was intended and be a true, daily news source.
Tough times, tough measures. Not much to add to that.
