The print edition of the Chronicle Herald will no longer be available to subscribers in some parts of rural Nova Scotia starting Nov. 28.
SaltWire, the media company that owns the newspaper, circulated a letter to subscribers in some rural areas on Monday informing customers they would be switched to a “digital-only subscription.”
As of next Monday, the print edition will not be distributed to subscribers in those rural areas. The newspaper will continue to be printed, but Saltwire will be reducing the number of routes it delivers to due to the declining number of print subscribers in these locations and increasing delivery costs.
“Our mobile apps, SaltWire.com and the e-edition replica newspapers have outpaced the demand for the printed newspaper,” the letter to customers said.
The digital subscription offers customers access to all SaltWire publications, including the P.E.I. Guardian, the St. John’s Telegram, the Chronicle Herald, and the Cape Breton Post.
