Daily News goes non-daily
One of the oldest US free dailies, the Daily News in the California (Palo Alto) Bay area will publish only three days a week from next week on: Wednesday, Fryday and Saturday.
The paper was launched in 1995 by Dave Price and Jim Pavelich, and sold to Knight Ridder in 2005, who again sold to McClatchy, who then sold to Dean Singleton’s MediaNews Group.
The Daily News introduced new editions (San Mateo, Redwood City, Burlingame, Los Gatos, Berkeley) between 2000 and 2005. In 2008 and 2009, however, these editions were closed and replaced with one Daily News edition.
The paper is published from Tuesday to Saturday, the Monday edition was terminated in 2008, the Sunday edition one year later.
