McClatchy ending Saturday print edition at all its dailies

Following up on the announcement recently that the Lexington Herald-Leader will be stopping its print issue on Saturday, McClatchy has announced a company-wide ceasing of Saturday editions at all of its daily newspapers.

McClatchy announced Wednesday that it planned to eliminate Saturday print issues at its daily papers by the end of 2020, though a new slate of articles will continue to appear digitally.

In October, Herald-Leader general manager/editor Peter Baniak announced that the Herald-Leader’s effective date would be January 11, 2020. Here’s a link to the Herald-Leader story as it appeared October 9.
