Hattiesburg paper to print three days a week, starting in April 3/21/17

The Hattiesburg (Miss.) American has announced plans to shift from publishing a print edition seven days a week to three – Wednesday, Friday and Sunday – beginning April 5.

In a letter to readers, Nathan Edwards, president of the Hattiesburg American, said: "The shift, driven by our consumers and advertisers, enables us to invest in new ways of doing business and better position ourselves for the future. Our research shows subscribers are increasingly choosing to access the American online via our website, mobile and tablet devices, with the Hattiesburg American having 8X more digital readers than print readers."
