Two Okanagan dailies axe Monday editions

Kelowna Daily Courier and Penticton Herald to cut their Monday edition

Next month, the Okanagan’s two daily newspapers will cease publication of their Monday editions, opting for a print schedule that spans Tuesday through Saturday.

In a story that ran in the Penticton Herald and Kelowna Daily Courier’s Thursday edition, the move was attributed to “the changing media landscape in North America and (their) own digital transformation.”

At the beginning of this decade, there were 36 daily newspapers in British Columbia. According to Newspapers Canada there are now 13.

The Daily Courier was founded in 1904 as the Kelowna Clarion. The Penticton Herald was founded in 1906 by W.J. Clement. It was first known as Penticton Press and later changed to Penticton Herald in 1910.
