Editor and Publisher Nanya Friend says the change will occur on Jan. 5. She says the change will save on transportation costs gives the Daily Mail a chance to extend its circulation beyond the Charleston area. The circulation area will expand over a six-month period.
Officials say the Daily Mail and Charleston Gazette will continue to have competing staffs and produce different news stories and editorial content. The newspapers will continue to produce one combined newspaper on Saturdays and Sundays.
