CARSON CITY– The owner of 4 northern Nevada-area papers says it’s decreasing the number of days it prints the papers each week.
The Nevada Appeal in Carson City reports owner Sierra Nevada Media Group is cutting the paper’s publishing schedule from six days a week to simply Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Sierra Nevada Media Group is also cutting The Record-Courier in Gardnerville from printing 3 days a week to just Thursdays and Saturdays. The Lahontan Valley News in Fallon will shift from 2 days of print to Wednesday only and Tahoe Daily Tribune will shrink from publishing three days a week to Fridays only.
The newspapers will still release online regularly.
Sierra Nevada Media Group says tariffs on newsprint, the effect of paper on garbage dumps and altering habits of readers all affected the choice to alter the publishing schedule.
