CARSON CITY — The owner of four northern Nevada-area newspapers says it’s reducing the number of days it prints the newspapers each week.

The Nevada Appeal in Carson City reports owner Sierra Nevada Media Group is cutting the paper’s publishing schedule from six days a week to just Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Sierra Nevada Media Group is also cutting The Record-Courier in Gardnerville from printing three days a week to just Thursdays and Saturdays. The Lahontan Valley News in Fallon will shift from two days of print to Wednesday only and Tahoe Daily Tribune will shrink from publishing three days a week to Fridays only.

The newspapers will still publish online regularly.

Sierra Nevada Media Group says tariffs on newsprint, the impact of paper on landfills and changing habits of readers all influenced the decision to change the publishing schedule.
