The publisher of the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram blames the coronavirus pandemic for the decision to stop printing a Sunday newspaper.
The paper will still be distributed Monday-through-Friday, but there will be no weekend edition. Publisher Randy Rickman says the pandemic hurt the newspaper’s bottom line and forced it to make the change. Publication of the Saturday and Sunday print editions of the newspaper will cease August 10th. No employees will lose their jobs, according to the announcement.
