Gwinnett Daily Post
LAWRENCEVILLE -- As announced on Feb. 17, the Gwinnett Daily Post begins a five-day print schedule this week. The print edition of the paper will be delivered Wednesday through Sunday, with updated news available daily at www.gwinnettdailypost.com.
In February, Southern Community Newspapers Inc., parent company of the Daily Post, announced a series of initiatives designed to increase operating efficiency and enhance its reliance on the Internet as a means to disseminate news on a 24-hour basis.
SCNI has consolidated printing of its six metro Atlanta newspapers at its production facility in Lawrenceville, home of the Daily Post. The Gwinnett plant now prints the Daily Post, the Rockdale Citizen, and the Newton Citizen in addition to three other SCNI newspapers -- the Clayton News-Daily, the Henry Daily Herald and the weekly Jackson Progress-Argus.
While adjusting days of print publication, the newspapers will add coverage by increasing efforts on the web and mobile sites.
"It's a challenging but exciting time for the newspaper industry," said J.K. Murphy, publisher of the Daily Post. "What newspapers do -- in-depth coverage and analysis -- translates well to the online medium. And the Internet allows us to deliver news and advertising instantly, rather than on a 24-hour print newscycle. These initiatives for 2012 make us more efficient and strengthen us for the future. The print editions remain strong, but the Internet is full of potential. Moving forward, we must continue to exploit digital means of disseminating the news."
