The Gazette of Montreal will no longer publish a print edition on Sundays, beginning next month.
In Canada, the Saturday paper is the equivalent of the U.S. Sunday paper.
“In its 22-year existence, the Sunday Gazette has struggled to find significant advertising support to cover the costs of printing and distribution,” Publisher and Editor in Chief Alan Allnutt said in a note to readers. “Subscription rates and single-copy sales cover only a small percentage of total costs; therefore, The Gazette has decided to focus its resources on the six remaining print editions and on the Web.”
He noted that La Presse in Montreal dropped its Sunday print edition last year.
The last Sunday print edition will be Aug. 1.
