Free Press Looking to Minimize Sunday Paper

By David Klassen

Winnipeg Free Press BuildingYour Saturday edition of the Winnipeg Free Press could become a bit thicker soon, if a plan to minimize the Sunday paper moves ahead.

On its website, the Free Press says it’s considering a “super” weekend edition, which would put out a Sunday tab version for the street — excluding home subscribers.

Publisher Bob Cox says the paper is “not running for cover” or “withdrawing from the marketplace.”

The decision has not been finalized yet, but other reports suggest the new Sunday format could roll out as early as November 1.
