Following similar changes by four dailies in northern New Jersey in the past year, two southern New Jersey dailies will be delivered to homes by one company this spring.
Beginning next month, The Daily Journal of Vineland, N.J., will contract with South Jersey Publishing Co. to deliver copies to home subscribers.
South Jersey Publishing will deliver its own daily, The Press of Atlantic City (weekday circulation 63,449), along with the six-day Gannett-owned Daily Journal (weekday circulation 14,622). The Daily Journal reported Sunday that some of its carriers will continue delivering their newspapers under contract to South Jersey Publishing.
To be completed in May, the change-over in delivery will affect no other newspaper operations, according to the Daily Journal — which will continue delivering its own copies to stores and vending boxes and handling all customer service calls and billing.
