The Casper Star-Tribune began sporting a new, slimmed-down look this week.
The Star-Tribune on Monday started printing on pages 11 inches wide, down from the previous 12.5 inches. Star-Tribune Editor Chad Baldwin says the reduction will save money on newsprint. He emphasizes that the paper has redesigned its headlines and layout so readers won’t see a reduction in news.
The Star-Tribune is owned by Lee Enterprises, Inc., based in Davenport, Iowa. The company publishes 49 daily newspapers nationwide and has a joint interest in four others. Baldwin says all Lee newspapers plan to go to the narrower page width over the coming year.
Lee reported this summer that total revenue was down more than 8% over the previous year, from roughly $280 million to $256 million.
