04 June 2012. New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. .L/R; Ella Rose Huck (9 yrs), Quinn Russell (9 yrs) and Talia Altman (9 yrs) join local citizens gathered to show their support for a 7 day newspaper in the city following the recent shock announcement that the Times Picayune, having survived 175 years and Hurricane Katrina is to be decimated by Advance Publications Inc, a Newhouse family company. Staff were shocked when the New York Times broke the story. The paper, with the highest readership rate in the USA is to have print days cut to just 3 days a week, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday starting this autumn. Despite the newspapers' relative success, (it is still in the black) having undergone swathes of recent cuts, Advance Publications Inc has decided to make further cuts and roll out an expanded digital version of the newspaper via its enhanced web presence at NOLA.com. Advance Publications has stripped print runs from Alabama newspapers and continues to look to slash print runs throughout its empire. This will be the first major US city to not have a daily newspaper..Photo; Charlie Varley.
