Courier Times Debuts Smaller Paper
Starting Monday, the Bucks County Courier Times will be printing a smaller paper.
Call it a sign of the times.
The Bucks County Courier Times is set to debut a smaller newspaper on Monday morning.
In a front-page letter to readers, Executive Editor Patricia S. Walker wrote the paper would be narrower by an inch. She added that readers might find the new page size easier to hold.
"We made no changes to the depth of our local news coverage," the letter reads. Walker also said the Courier Times will remain committed to printing concerns and opinions of readers.
The New York Times and Wall Street Journal are among the many newspaper that have reduced the size of their pages in an era of shrinking advertising revenues.
The Courier Times and sister paper The Intellegencer have worked to keep with the times in recent years by adding social media accounts and a video team.
