Citing the affordability and flexibility of delivering information online, four newspapers owned by Aim Media Indiana LLC plan to reduce the number of print editions they publish each week.

The Republic in Columbus, Daily Reporter in Greenfield and The Tribune in Seymour will publish print editions only on Wednesdays and Saturdays instead of five to seven editions per week. Franklin’s Daily Journal is discontinuing its Monday print edition from a Monday-through-Saturday roster.

Richard Clark, group publisher and vice president of Aim Media Indiana, said the new printing schedule that begins Sept. 2 is overdue.

“This is not an easy shift, but we really should have done something like this 10 or 15 years ago,” Clark told the IBJ. “We are such traditionalists in the newspaper business that we hung on and we hung on until we reached a tipping point where having a paper seven days a week wasn’t putting money in the bank. It was taking money out of the bank.”

Clark announced the change in published letters to readers.

“More and more of our loyal subscribers and new readers are getting their news through one or more of our online delivery methods,” Clark wrote. “The world has pivoted to digital delivery of information. We have to pivot with it. It is the news itself that is important, and digital delivery provides us with the speed and cost efficiencies that we need in order to continue to report on local issues.”

The Aim Media publications plan to update news daily on their respective websites.
