Suburban Journals Discontinue Some Print Editions Including Wednesday North County Journal
The change is said to result in the loss of 20 positions.
If you step outside on a Wednesday and don't see your North County Suburban Journal, there's a good reason for that, and it's not because the deliveryman missed your house.
The Suburban Journals is set to discontinue its Wednesday editions in North St. Louis County and Monroe, St. Clair and Jefferson counties after the Sept. 7 issue.
Wednesday the Suburban Journals announced via STLtoday.com that the publication of the Sunday Journals print editions in St. Charles County and Illinois would also halt after Sunday. The move was deemed a "shift in focus of coverage."
Journals publisher Dave Bundy told the Business Journal that the changes will result in the elimination of 20 positions.
"Focusing more on digital news delivery in some areas frees us from the weekly print cycle and allows us to continue providing the best community coverage available to the Greater St. Louis area," he said in the STLtoday.com article.
The Journals will continue to publish Wednesday print editions in western and eastern St. Charles County, West and South St. Louis County, Collinsville and Granite City.
