Al Día to Wednesday & Saturday
Dallas Spanish language free daily Al Día already switched in February of last year from a daily to semi-weekly publication. The move apparently was part of a much bigger cost-cutting operation by publisher Belo (Dallas Morning News) last year.
The paper was launched by Belo in 2003 and moved to a all-free model in 2005. Earlier Belo converted free daily Quick to a weekly.
In 2008 free door-to-door daily Briefing (Wednesday-Saturday) was launched, circulation was increased this year to more than 200,000 copies.
