MediaNews Group will stop publishing Monday editions of three Northern California newspapers: The Vacaville Reporter, the Vallejo Times-Herald and the Eureka Times-Standard.
The move is intended to cut costs and send readers on Mondays to the websites of those papers to find local news. MediaNews plans to drop the paywall on those papers’ sites on Mondays.
Three other papers dropping their paywalls on Mondays are The Oakland Tribune, the Fremont Argus and the Hayward Daily Review. The three East Bay papers have stopped home delivery on Monday, but they are still available that day in news racks and stores. For more information, see PaidContent and this announcement in the Eureka paper.
