Detroit Free Press custs home delivery

I missed this, so I’m mentioning it in case you did too:
In a First for a U.S. City, Detroit Newspapers Cut Home Delivery
— by

For the first time in a large U.S. city, newspaper readers in Detroit will no longer be able to step outside their door to grab a delivered paper every day.

The publisher of the Detroit Free Press and the Detroit News said Tuesday it would eliminate home delivery on most days.

The move comes as newspapers across the country have been hit by declining readership and advertising revenues resulting in layoffs at major dailies as more people get their news on the internet.

Subscribers will only receive home delivery on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, and a scaled-down version of the paper will be available on newsstands on other days of the week, said the Detroit Media Partnership, which operates both papers under a joint operating agreement.
