The daily Dickinson Press newspaper is cutting back its print edition to five days a week, Publisher Harvey Brock announced Thursday.
“Change is never easy, but continuing to operate on yesterday’s model is no longer feasible,” Brock wrote in a message to readers. The Press is one of several North Dakota newspapers owned by Forum Communications Co.
The changes, which start Feb. 28, include the addition of three or four USA Today pages to the Press.
“Countless hours have been spent developing the new publishing model,” he wrote. “The new format will allow The Dickinson Press to embrace the new world we live in and distribute more information and offers the best opportunity to serve our customer’s needs for the future.”
