Instead of shifting to delivery by the U.S. Postal Service when it moves to a weekly print schedule in January, The Salt Lake Tribune has announced that it will continue to rely on carriers to deliver the Sunday morning paper.
In a column announcing the decision, Senior Managing Editor Matt Canham said: "We are working hard to ensure we’re doing our best by you, our subscribers, by retaining as much of our traditional service as possible — with added local reporting and new regular features." This will include carrier delivery for subscribers who live in Salt Lake, Utah, Davis and Summit counties, as well as in St. George. Subscribers who live elsewhere will get their paper in their mailboxes early in the week. He noted that the Sunday paper also will be available for purchase at select stores.
In an effort to offer subscribers as much value as possible, Canham noted that the staff will continue to design a daily newspaper and deliver it electronically to subscribers Monday through Friday.
The current e-edition published by the paper will become more user friendly, with bigger headlines and photos and less small type. The e-edition will allow readers to see a real front page, read sports coverage of games that finished just before midnight and more. The Sunday paper also will be available as an e-edition, with print subscribers having full access to the e-edition and sltrib.com.
