USA Today Transitions Toward The World Of Electronic News Distribution

USA Today shaking up staff in 'radical' overhaul

I used subscribe for home delivery of the USAToday and the WallStreet Journal on a daily basis and the local paper on Sundays.  In the past few months I have allowed my paper delivery of all of them to expire as I transitioned toward the paid electronic version of the USAToday and the WSJ.

The one beneift is that my load of paper to be recycled is being reduced.  Despite having loads of articles that I have put to the side with the promise of following up later - I typically put it all into a box 3 months later and discard them anyway.

Electronic news distribution is the logical way to go for the future.

Every 2 months or so my Sunday paper that was delivered by a paper guy riding down the street in a car would be scattered all over my yard.   Once the paper hit the ground the plastic bag would burst open and the advertising inserts would scatter.

I now go to the grocery store and purchase the Sunday paper.
