Huntsville Times Prints Final Paper in Huntsville
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — While you were likely sleeping, The Huntsville Times was printing. It’s been that way since 1910. But as of Monday, it’s a thing of the past. From now on, the paper will be printed in Birmingham, and trucked to Huntsville.
It’s part of a restructuring plan to save money. Many newspapers across the country are struggling, as consumers continue to turn to the internet for news. The Times‘ parent company, Advance Publications, also owns The Birmingham News and the Mobile Press-Register. As many as 400 jobs are expected to be cut across the three newspapers.
Beginning this fall, you will only receive a newspaper on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. The Times is promising a more robust paper on those three days.
