The Anchorage Daily News, Alaska's top newspaper, will reduce printing to only two days per week.

Alaska's Anchorage Daily News, the most widely read newspaper in the state, will reduce its print schedule to only two days a week starting on July 15. The print edition will be available on Sundays and Wednesdays, as announced by president and owner Ryan Binkley on Monday. This decision comes as the ADN aims to focus more on its digital platforms, where the majority of its audience engages with the news. Only about 7% of readers still consume the printed paper, making it unsustainable to continue daily printing. Despite the change resulting in the loss of three positions related to distribution, Binkley reassured that the newspaper remains profitable and healthy. The ADN, which filed for bankruptcy in 2017 and was purchased by the Binkley family, will continue to provide daily news content online at ADN.com and through its e-edition. Binkley acknowledges the sentimental value of printed newspapers but believes that the shift will ultimately strengthen the paper's focus on customer preferences and digital platforms.
