- The Idaho Press-Tribune is set to drop its Monday print edition.
Beginning Monday, Aug. 1, the Idaho Press-Tribune will no longer print its Monday edition.
According to a statement posted on the Press-Tribune website, the move is not a reflection of the paper's business performance, but an "experiment" to refocus the paper toward a more online, mobile-focused readership.
"The Idaho Press-Tribune isn’t going anywhere. In fact, thanks to the rise of online news, smartphones and social media, the number of folks reading our content is higher today than at any point in our history," wrote IPT Publisher Matt Davison.
The change doesn't mean the end of Monday content, either. Some content, like Cheers and Jeers, will be printed at other times of the week and the comics will be published in the Sunday edition. In addition, readers can expect changes to the mobile and desktop versions of IdahoPress.com.
IPT—the second oldest paper in the state—is part of the Pioneer News Group, which includes the Idaho State Journal and Meridian Press.
