The Pittsburgh Press revived as an afternoon e-edition

Pittsburgh Business Times

The first e-edition of The Pittsburgh Press, which the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette bought and closed after a brutal strike that stopped publication of both papers in the early 1990s, went out Monday. “We sensed a hunger in Pittsburgh and elsewhere in our diaspora for something that provides afternoon news in a newspaper format that was offered digitally,” said Post-Gazette Executive Editor David Shribman. The Pittsburgh Press' Wikipedia page has already been updated with a section about its "resurrection online."  || Related: Orange County Register reinvents evening news cycle with curated iPad app (Poynter.org)
