International Falls paper switches to twice a week
International Falls, Minn. (AP) — The Daily Journal of International Falls is switching from five days a week to twice-a-week publication next month.
Starting Feb. 3, the northern Minnesota newspaper will change its name to The Journal and publish on Wednesdays and Fridays.
The newspaper says it's making the changes to better position itself for the future.
Journal Publisher Rob Davenport says the paper will continue to offer news, advertising and other features. The new schedule will allow for more in-depth news reporting.
The Journal also will add to its products by publishing The Journal Shopper, which will be delivered on Friday to nonsubscribers.
No jobs will be affected at The Journal, but contractors who delivered the Monday edition will no longer be needed.
Last September, the Red Wing Republican Eagle switched to twice-a-week publication.
