Newspapers & Technology Magazine - - News You May Have Missed -

Nuvo, an al­ter­na­tive newsweekly based in In­di­anapo­lis, is cut­ting its print sched­ule.

Start­ing in mid-Novem­ber, the print edi­tion of the pa­per was to be pub­lished every two weeks. Go­ing for­ward, the page count will be up, with more ad­ver­tis­ing. e pa­per will have more event rec­om­men­da­tions and pre­views and longer fea­tures in news, arts, food and

en­ter­tain­ment, ac­cord­ing to the pa­per.

“While our over­all read­er­ship has re­mained con­sis­tent over the past three decades, the num­ber of dig­i­tal read­ers con­tin­ues to in­crease and print read­ers de­crease, with a good num­ber read­ing us both on­line and in print,” said an ex­pla­na­tion of the changes from Ed­i­tor Laura McPhee.

Re­cently the pa­per got a grant from the Com­mu­nity Lis­ten­ing and En­gage­ment Fund backed by e News In­tegrity Ini­tia­tive, e Democ­racy Fund, the Knight Foun­da­tion and the Len­fest In­sti­tute for Jour­nal­ism.

e pa­per used the grant funds to get two plat­forms, Hear­ken and GroundSource, that “will help make our jour­nal­ism more pub­lic-pow­ered,” ac­cord­ing to the pa­per.

e pa­per dates to 1990. “We’re ex­cited about the fu­ture and how we will evolve in or­der to re­main Indy’s best source for lo­cal, in­de­pen­dent jour­nal­ism for decades to come,” McPhee wrote.
