Gannett's 'Journal & Courier' Switches To Postal Delivery

The Journal & Courier, of Lafayette, Ind., has joined the parade of Gannett publications shifting to mail delivery. 

Starting Monday, readers were to receive their printed editions via the U.S. Postal Service. 

“We'll still have our e-edition online in the morning and the newspaper's website,, and its app will continue to bring you the news in a manner quick and more timely than the print edition,” the Journal & Courier writes. 

As Gannett sees it, print delivery faces labor challenges, fluctuating fuel prices, increased competition for door-to-door delivery workers and the switch to digital.

“Rest assured, the printed edition will continue, but the round-the-clock online news cycle has made digital products the first choice for breaking-news, and print subscribers are increasingly engaging digitally,” the Journal & Courier states. 

The print issues will serve as a place where “readers can dive into local news with more impact and context, feel-good community features, sports analysis and commentary — the stories you can’t get anywhere else,” it adds.
