Pottsville Newspaper Scrapping Monday Edition Starting April 10

The local paper following others in the industry.

The daily newspaper in Pottsville is scrapping its Monday print edition starting in April.

According to an article and notice appearing on the Republican-Herald’s website Tuesday, the paper won’t publish on Monday, April 10, and no Mondays thereafter. Instead, the Pottsville paper will only be available through an “e-edition” to its readers.

Times Shamrock Communications is making this decision with its newspapers in Hazleton, Scranton, and Wilkes-Barre, too.

The Republican Herald will still be available in print edition Tuesday through Sunday.

“Your newspaper will be delivered digitally in an easy-to-use electronic edition,” the paper’s publisher, Mike Joyce, writes in a notice appearing in the Tuesday, March 14 edition.

Joyce adds, “As we all experienced significant change over the past few years, our industry and company are no different, feeling the effects of inflation on our business along with changes to the national advertising model.”

In a separate article, Times Shamrock CEO James Lewandowski boasts that these papers are actually “late to the party” of other newspapers going all-digital on certain days of the week, citing The Patriot News (Harrisburg), Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and The Times Leader (Wilkes-Barre) as others who previously switched to an all-digital format a few days a week.

Printing 6 days a week is not unheard of for the Pottsville newspaper. Not soon after the turn of the 21st Century is when the paper started printing a Sunday edition.
