TORONTO -- Postmedia Network Inc. says four Ontario newspapers will publish printed or digital editions one less day of the week with no reduction in the subscription price.
The Kingston Whig-Standard and Belleville Intelligencer will cease Monday papers effective Nov. 19.
The Brockville Recorder and Times, and Chatham Daily News will end Wednesday editions as of the same week. Chatham doesn't have a Monday edition.
In notices published on the various websites, readers were told that news will continue to be reported to its local websites and on social media.
Content published on the days in question will move to other days of the week.
The newspapers say the changes reflect the changing media landscape in North America and their own digital transformation.
Postmedia has announced multiple rounds of layoffs and cost-reductions as it adjusts to industry challenges.
