An internal working document obtained by The Laurel indicates the Torrington Register-Citizen, owned by Hearst CT Media, will begin publishing a print edition once per week beginning March 12.
The decision will be shared publicly with readers in Thursday’s editions.
Update: This message was posted online Wednesday.
Publisher Mike DeLuca informed Hearst staff the decision is driven by low subscriptions for the paper, which he put at “a few hundred,” and the opportunity to reinvest savings into additional content:
“Creating one robust edition each week coupled with the e-edition and digital access to all of our content will allow us to be more efficient and invest more dollars into deepening and furthering our content. There will also be no change in staffing as a result of this decision.”
