Daily Wyoming Newspaper Shrinks To 3 Days A Week
With new technology comes new ways to do old things.
Recently Wyoming's Casper Star-Tribune sold its big building and moved to a much smaller location.
They no longer print their paper in Casper.
They have it printed for them in Cheyenne by the Tribune Eagle.
Then, they stopped printing 7 days a week.
Their Sunday paper is smaller than their Monday paper used to be.
If that were not bad enough, big new changes have just been announced.
Starting June 13, the print edition of the Star-Tribune will move to a different publication schedule, with delivery three days each week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
In addition, your newspaper will transition from being delivered by a traditional newspaper delivery carrier to mail delivery by the U.S. Postal Service. (Casper Star Tribune).
People today read more than ever before.
But what we read, and how we get it, has changed.
This has been the case for newspapers and magazines all over the nation.
The old-fashioned paper, delivered by the paperboy, landing on your front porch, is all but gone.
Most people do not read physical papers anymore.
Papers like the Start Tribune still want to charge a subscription price, even online.
But most other online news services are FREE!
Today the majority of people get their news on their cell devices.
The old daily paper provides news that's 3 to 5 days old.
Apps provide up-to-the-minute news, sometimes as it is happening.
Most weekly newspapers are gone.
Many daily newspapers are fading.
They are thinner, and smaller in their length and width.
Most daily papers don't publish their paper edition daily like they used to.
This does not mean that these new sources are going away.
They are just moving to another platform.
There are now more news services in Wyoming than ever before.
But if you're one of the few who are not reading them online, or off your phone, you're not seeing them.
