Harrisburg Patriot-News Scales Back to Three Days a Week

The Harrisburg Patriot-News will cease daily production as it merges with Pennlive.com to form a new organization called PA Media Group. Beginning in January, the Patriot-News will be published three times a week as PA Media Group looks to intensify its online presence with Pennlive.com. A second company will print and distribute the newspapers, which will be published on Sundays and two days yet to be determined. [Pennlive.com]
