Owner of 'Times Chronicle' Could Reduce Frequency of its Daily Editions

Journal Register Company CEO would consider reducing print frequency of newspapers in certain markets


According to Poynter.org, Journal Register Company, which recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, could eliminate one or two daily print editions at some of its 20 daily newspapers.

CEO John Paton said he would consider the change for the newspapers which show strong advertising growth for online editions, which also lack resources to produce seven quality daily papers each week.

Paton has praised the New Orleans Times-Picayune plan to print only three days a week, but said for JRC the reduction might mean only eliminating one or two editions.

Paton noted that he's considering the reduction based on declining print revenues and increasing digital revenues.

Journal Register Company, which owns The Times Chronicle, The Reporter, The Times Herald, and local dailies in Montgomery County, previously filed for bankruptcy in 2009.

The Times Chronicle ISN'T a daily newspaper.

Are you just copying and pasting this from other PA Patch sites and then doing a "find and change" for the newspaper's name?

This comment would have been a big help had the story said the "Times Chronicle" was a daily newspaper.
