OT: Newspapers die a little more - Part 2

http://www.freep.com/article/20081216/FREEPRESS/81216032

 

Detroit Media Partnership CEO Dave Hunke, publisher of the Free Press, said that starting in spring 2009, both the Free Press and the Detroit News — also operated by the partnership — would deliver to homes only on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, the heaviest days for advertising and the most popular papers for readers. But the newspapers will remain available seven days a week at stores, newsstands and coin boxes across Michigan.

I thought this story was an interesting followup to the previous fanpost about the DMN and FWST pooling beat guys. I wonder how long the concept of a delivered paper will hold up across the country. It seems like such an antiquated concept in these days of digital delivery everywhere 24/7.
