PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette will cut out two more days of print beginning on September 30.

If you want to view the paper on a Monday or Wednesday, you will soon have to look online.

“The majority of our readers likely aren’t tech-savvy; some don’t even have computers. So trying to switch over to a digital platform is particularly difficult in this environment,” said Mike Fuoco, President of the Newspaper Guild of Pittsburgh, during an interview with KDKA Radio on Monday.

This is in addition to last summer’s cut, when the Post-Gazette eliminated print on Tuesdays and Saturdays.  

“They’ve also said that their plan is to have none eventually,” Fuoco adds.
