The Next Big Thing in Digital News Innovation is streaming live at 10:30am PT/1:30.
John Paton, CEO, Digital First Media, to the New York Times about reducing the number of days each week that newspapers will publish. Newspapers Cut Days From Publishing Week.
Here’s the trend in a nutshell:
Almost two weeks ago, The Times-Picayune in New Orleans, which is owned by Advance Publications, announced that it would cut back its print schedule to just three days a week. Within hours, its sister publications The Birmingham News, The Press-Register of Mobile and The Huntsville Times followed suit. Four days later, Postmedia announced that three of its papers, The Calgary Herald, The Edmonton Journal and The Ottawa Citizen would all eliminate their Sunday editions.

Local Edition will be delivered Thursday. News of the subterranean Market Street bar from the Bourbon & Branch/Rickhouse family first broke on Scoop last summer, and last week, UrbanDaddy revealed that it’s finally ready to roll.
As promised, it’s not a Prohibition-themed bar; rather, set in the basement of the Hearst Building in the formerExaminer printing room, it pays homage to the newspaper business (!) and the ’50s and ’60s.
It opens Thursday, but will have extended days of operation next week. Reservations will not be required, but they are making the reservation system available after this weekend; keep up on the website. No passwords.
In addition to the decor, the cocktail list will tip its cap to all things related to the era’s news cycle and newspaper business, especially Hearst properties.Source: insidescoopsf.sfgate.com
