Fewer Capital News editions

Kelowna's Capital News is reducing the number of publications each week from three to two.

The paper currently publishes on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, but that will change to two editions, on Wednesday and Friday, starting the week of Sept. 15.

The announcement says Black Press remains committed to serving the Central Okanagan over the long term. All Black Press community papers now publish twice a week, except the Vernon Morning Star.

Publisher Karen Hill says the new schedule brings the Capital News into alignment with other Valley publications in Penticton, Vernon and Salmon Arm, all of which have community papers published on Wednesday and Friday. The Vernon Morning Star also has a Sunday edition.

Asked if the move is a cost-saving measure, Hill said there are no other reasons for the change except those outlined in the announcement. She says the paper is strong and vibrant, and has exciting plans for the future.

“There was a great deal of thought put forward to reach this decision but I feel it is the best decision we can make for the newspaper moving forward,” Hill said.

No changes have been announced so far for the Vernon Morning Star.
