paidContent | KQED
Laura Hazard Owen reports that three MediaNews Group papers in California — The Reporter in Vacaville, Times-Herald in Vallejo, Times-Standard in Eureka — will stop printing Monday papers effective Dec. 19. In addition, three papers in the Bay Area News Group -- Oakland Tribune, Argus in Fremont and The Daily Review in Hayward -- previously announced the end of home delivery on Mondays. The company is calling it "digital-first Mondays" and says it is a cost-saving measure to free up money for digital investments. PaidContent has the memo. || Earlier: Consolidation plan reversed, Monday home delivery to cease | MediaNews and JRC combine under John Paton. || Related: Will dailies stay daily? (AJR)

Correction: Based on paidContent's report, this post originally stated that all six papers would cease Monday printing. It has been revised to reflect the accurate information.
