Anniston Star dropping Monday paper in October
The Anniston Star plans to discontinue its Monday print edition in October and make other cost-cutting moves while refocusing on digital content.
The newspaper, owned by Consolidated Publishing Co., in announcing the changes said the Monday paper is the smallest in advertising and circulation. Editor Bob Davis said readers can access new content on Mondays on the newspaper's website (http://www.annistonstar.com).
The newspaper also is discontinuing its Escapes section on Fridays and moving the arts and feature stories and TV listings to Sunday's paper. Davis said no layoffs are planned.
Anniston's announcement comes a month after Alabama's three largest papers, The Birmingham News, The Huntsville Times and the Press-Register of Mobile, announced 400 layoffs by Sept. 30 as a result of their shift to three days of publication. The papers are owned by Advance Publications.
