Cost-cutting: Cavalier Daily makes Fridays eOnly
In a bold cost-cutting move that seems emblematic of woes hitting media outlets from coast to coast, the venerable student newspaper at the University of Virginia has decided to cease print publications on Fridays, according to a story in last Friday's online edition, which will continue unabated.
"All your favorite content — news and sports stories, columns and comics, and of course editorials — will still be available Fridays on cavalierdaily.com. The print edition, however, will no longer be available for the time being. The Thursday newspaper is thus the new weekend edition, which makes sense, as everyone in college knows the weekend starts Thursday."
An accompanying editorial notes that the Richmond-based firm that distributes the student paper has announced that it wishes to exit the newspaper business entirely.
