The Roanoke Times, which was acquired by Warren Buffett’s BH Media Group last May, told employees today that they’ll no longer get free home delivery.

“Rising costs of newsprint and ink as well as production expenses and the costs associated with providing free home delivery to our employees are a very large expense,” says the Times memo. “To help defray some of these expenses, as of February 1 your subscription to The Roanoke Times will no longer be paid at 100%, but we want each of our employees to continue to engage with the product they help produce, so we will offer a 50% discount.”
