Merger, launch & conversion

Today both Finnish free dailies Metro and Uutislethi 100, both owned by Sanoma, will merge. In fact Uutislethi 100 will close down while the circulation of Metro will increase by 50% to make up for the missing readers. (see previous post)

In Colombia a new paper will be launched today by CEET (El Tiempo), four editions with a total circulation of 300,000. (see previous)

In New England (USA), local free weekly Siglo21 will be converted into a free daily. (see previous)

    [...] Endast en gratistidning kvar i Finland Metro och Uutislethi 100 har samma ägare; Sanoma. Nu väljer man att lägga ner Uutislethi och istället öka upplagan med 50% på Metro. http://www.newspaperinnovation.com/index.php/2008/09/15/merger-launch-conversion/ [...]
