CASPER, Wyo. (AP) – Wyoming’s largest newspaper will no longer have a print edition two days a week. Starting the week of Aug. 24, the Casper Star-Tribune will cease print editions on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Newspaper President Michelle Robinson says the change reflects reader demand as more readers choose to get their news online.
The Star-Tribune will continue publishing online stories and offering electronic editions of its print newspaper 7 days a week. Several other newspapers in Wyoming have taken similar actions in recent years to save money and respond to customer desires.
The Star-Tribune closed its printing plant last August, eliminating 24 jobs, and outsourced the printing ot the newspaper to a plant in Cheyenne.
The Star-Tribune is part of Lee Enterprises, whose holdings include the Chadron Record, Scottsbluff Star-Herald, Rapid City Journal, Lincoln Journal Star, and Omaha World Herald.
