Daily Californian drops Wednesday edition

Add the Daily Californian to the list of newspapers that have dropped editions due to a downturn in advertising. The Daily Cal, a 137-year-old student-run newspaper independent of the UC Berkeley administration, says it no longer print on Wednesdays. It also plans to scale back its staff and reduce compensation, though it gave no specifics.

The Daily Cal also said it will beef up its online offerings, a statement frequently made by newspapers when they cut print editions.

In March, Berkeley lost the East Bay Daily News and in April the Berkeley Daily Planet went from two editions a week to just one.

Bryan Thomas, editor-in-chief and president of the Daily Cal, wrote:
