Madera Tribune, citing economic hardship, reduces publication to twice a week

The Madera Tribune will reduce publication to every Wednesday and Saturday beginning Wednesday.

Publisher Chuck Doud said in a post on The Tribune’s website that tough economic circumstances prompted the change. The paper, which was founded in 1892, was published Tuesday through Saturday before the change.

Doud said The Tribune will continue to focus on its printed edition as well as maintaining its website and electronic version.

The new annual subscription price will be $49, and any current subscribers who paid for the previous subscription package will have their plans extended automatically.
