DG: Morning News to Stop Some Newspaper Delivery

According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, its northwest Arkansas competitor, The Morning News, is cutting back on home delivery of its newspaper in Carroll County, certain areas of Washington County and a county in Missouri. Subscribers who no longer receive the newspaper in those areas will be encouraged to have it sent through the mail or view a special online edition.

The Stephens Media Group-owned newspaper blames economic conditions for the cutbacks.

All this comes after layoffs at The Morning News and other newspapers in Arkansas, including the Democrat-Gazette, which has also raised its subscription rates.

The Morning News’ online edition, or “e-edition” as it’s called on its Web site, is similar to reading a PDF of the newspaper, with all articles, headlines, photos — and advertising — appearing exactly as it does in the physical newspaper. The Democrat-Gazette has an electronic edition of its newspaper online, and others have experimented with e-editions, including Arkansas Business Publishing Group, which has published newspapers and some magazines and special editions in the format.
