Newspaper in Medford to cease print publication

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — The newspaper in Medford, Oregon, will cease print publication on Sept. 30.
The Mail Tribune says it will move to an electronic format beginning in October.
“I made a commitment to the Rogue Valley to keep a printed newspaper as long as we could break even. We eclipsed that a long time ago,” said owner and publisher Steven Saslow, who bought the newspaper five years ago.
Saslow said printing and delivery costs for the newspaper were threatening the business.
The Medford Mail was founded in 1888. It merged with the Medford Daily Tribune in 1909.
The Mail Tribune had already gone from printing the newspaper seven days a week to printing four days per week.
