The Plain Dealer in Cleveland announced Thursday that it is cutting back home delivery of the newspaper to three days per week.

The Plain Dealer, Ohio’s largest daily, will be delivered Sunday and two other still-unspecified days of the week beginning in late summer, publisher Terry Egger said in a news release.

The newspaper still will be printed every day and be available for purchase at thousands of outlets in Northeast Ohio.

A new digitally focused media company called Northeast Ohio Media Group will be started this summer, the news release said.

The organization will be responsible for all ad sales and marketing for The Plain Dealer and oversee the operation of Cleveland.com website and Sun News.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group and The Plain Dealer Publishing Co. will provide content for all print and digital platforms.

“These actions are aimed at driving innovation, capitalizing on the tremendous strengths of our existing organizations, preserving high-quality journalism and marketing solutions and providing greater efficiency and flexibility in serving Northeast Ohio through print and digital applications,” Egger said in the release.

The newspaper has a weekday circulation of about 286,400.

It is owned by New York-based Advance Publications Inc.

Other Advance papers, such as the Times- Picayune in New Orleans and The Birmingham News in Alabama, have cut back their publishing schedules to three days a week.

I remember when Cleveland had three newspapers: The Press;, The News and of course the PD. Sad what's happening to our newspapers.
