Tribune will change circulation, delivery services
Some readers of the Portland Tribune will be affected by circulation and delivery changes that are being made this month.
The Tribune is increasing its Friday circulation to 160,000 and making more newspapers available in racks in Beaverton, Lake Oswego, West Linn, Gresham and other close-in suburban communities, as well as within the city of Portland.
Additionally, beginning Jan. 15, the Tribune no longer will provide home delivery of the Tuesday paper. On Fridays, about 20 percent of the people who currently receive home delivery of that edition will no longer receive it.
To make it easier for those readers to get their newspaper, the Tribune is adding 400 additional racks in Portland neighborhoods and in suburban locations. That will boost the number of Tribune news rack and pickup locations to 1,500.
'Some of these changes are driven by the desires of readers and advertisers, while others are made necessary by our commitment to remaining a free newspaper Ñ despite the recessionary economy that has affected nearly all media outlets across the country,' said Tribune President Dwight Jaynes.
'From the beginning, our challenge has been to get the Portland Tribune to all those who want it,' he said. 'We believe these changes will allow everyone who wants to read the Tribune that opportunity.'
