Breeze to consolidate print days starting next week

By Staff | Dec 10, 2009

The Breeze will consolidate its print editions to three days per week, effective immediately.
Beginning next week, The Breeze will publish its print editions Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, with Saturday continuing as the most widely distributed newspaper in Cape Coral.
The online publishing cycle will be unchanged: Breaking news will be published as it happens, and local government news and high school sports results will be published on: cape-coral-daily-breeze.com Sunday through Saturday.
“The Breeze will continue as a daily newspaper online, but we have adjusted our print publishing cycle,” said Publisher Jack Glarrow. “The Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday print publishing days were decided after careful consideration of reader and advertising needs. Readers will still find all of the news and features they are used to reading, and advertisers will have a better-than-ever hometown package for reaching Cape consumers.”
The Breeze will reconfigure its weekday news and features packages into the new publishing days.
The early-week edition of The Breeze, which will publish on Tuesday, will continue to focus on the Cape community and will include all of the clubs and organization calendars currently published Monday and Tuesday.
The mid-week edition, to be published Thursday, will continue its education and health emphasis, and all related news briefs and calendar items will found on their usual pages as will the Newspapers in Education features.
The weekend edition will still publish Saturday.
The Saturday Breeze will continue to be distributed via home delivery to approximately 56,000 homes throughout Cape Coral and will continue as The Breeze centerpiece with local editorials, letters to the editor, in-depth news focus stories, and lifestyles and real estate sections.
To best serve readers, city legal advertising also will continue to re-print Saturdays and online.
Each edition will continue to include the same strong community news and sports emphasis for which The Breeze is known, along with the comics, crosswords, opinion page pundits, columnists and TV listings with which readers are familiar.
“Nothing has been deleted,” Glarrow said. “We have developed a content plan that allows us to provide the various story and feature elements readers are used to on a modified print publication cycle. News will continue to be fresh and timely online and also in-print as our reporting staff is dedicated to presenting the ‘what’s next’ element that is as important to readers as ‘what happened.’
“We will continue our commitment to our core mission: to be the primary provider of local news and information in the community we serve,” he said. “We have worked hard to make sure neither our readers nor our advertisers will receive less under our new print publishing cycle.”
Paid subscribers to The Breeze will have their subscription dates extended accordingly.
