Montreal Gazette to go Web-only on Sundays

An interesting piece of news for you who happen to read the newspaper in Montreal. On Aug. 8, the Montreal Gazette will stop publishing its Sunday edition and go Web-only for a day, publisher Alan Allnutt said in a statement on the paper’s website.

Montreal Gazette logoAllnutt said the paper has, for years, struggled to find enough advertising to pay the bills. Dropping to a six-day schedule will save the paper quite a bit of money.

The Saturday paper will, for all intents and purposes, become the Sunday paper, the “Weekend Gazette.”

(For the record, the Chronicle has no plans to drop any of its print days.)
