The Bay Area News Group’s free mid-peninsula newspaper, The Daily News, will reduce its printing schedule to three days a week starting next week, according to an announcement printed this morning on the paper’s editorial page.

The Daily News had been printing Tuesday through Saturday. It eliminated its Monday edition in 2008.

However, Publisher Steve Paterson said in the announcement that the Daily News will produce an e-edition five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday, that will be emailed to readers or available through an app for iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Android tablet and Kindle Fire users.

“Between digital and print, we’ll still be ‘local, five days a week,’” Patterson wrote.

  1. The Palo Alto Daily News was once a pretty good paper. Now it is thin and full of stories from the mother ship (Merc News). The Palo Alto Weekly looks like it is dying too. I guess the survivor will be the Daily Post, since it's full of ads. But it's very sensationalistic, always looking for a big headline to frighten people or tear down public employees. God help us if the Post wins this three-way battle.

  2. If they're only printing three days a week, are they going to drop the word "Daily" from the title "Daily News"?
