Free Press eyes end to Sunday edition
The Winnipeg Free Press is considering cutting its Sunday edition.
CBC News has learned the independently owned newspaper is looking at replacing the Sunday paper with a tabloid that would not be delivered to homes.
The tab, which would be half the size of the regular newspaper and save the company money, would be sold in newspaper boxes and convenience stores. The change could take place as early as Nov. 1, sources close to the Free Press said.
A prototype has been worked on for a month, and a special press run was held Friday, sources said.
The 40-page tabloid is tentatively called On 7. The change is still awaiting approval from the Free Press owners, FP Canadian Newspapers Limited Partnership.
