A sign that Athens may cut back on its print editions?

You have to wonder if this might be the start of the ABH newspaper cutting back on its print products and focusing mostly on its “digital first” program. Many daily newspapers are really looking at iPad and other pad distribution for the long term. Getting rid of print and its associated distribution costs would cut a huge amount of expense out the system.

What remains to be seen, however, is whether or not readers are ready to give up the printed page for the digital page.

  1. Mike,
    Your comment is fair considering the tough economic situation most mainstream newspapers are in these days. On a lighter note, i wanted to take this opportunity to wish you and your family, as well as the rest of the Barrow Journal staff,and their families, a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year in 2012!
