NEWSPAPERS IN NOVA SCOTIA CONSOLIDATED
Two Nova Scotia newspapers are going from daily to weekly publications, while others are merging into single papers. Saltwire Network, which owns several papers in the province including the Halifax Chronicle Herald, says the publications in Truro and New Glasgow will now both come out once a week on Thursdays, starting July 1. In stories on its papers’ sites, the company says it is also consolidating
the weeklies Amherst News and The Citizen Record into one publication called the Amherst News. It says there will also be a shift from a paid-for subscription publication to a free community newspaper. The Queens County Advance will also merge with the South Shore Breaker. Saltwire CEO Mark Lever says the change reflects an evolving newspaper business.
