UK's 'Evening Standard' Switches From Daily To Weekly Print

The steady erosion of print dailies has claimed a UK publication that has been around for almost 200 years.   

London’s Evening Standard is reverting to a weekly print cycle. 

Circulation had fallen from 850,000 to 275,000 over five years, despite the paper’s having been free since 2009, according to BBC.  

A couple factors that harmed the print edition is an increase of people working from home and the availability of wifi on the Tube, London’s subway system, according to BBC. 

The original version of the Standard first appeared in 1827, with an evening edition added in 1859.
