PHILADELPHIA — The company that owns both the Philadelphia Daily News and The Philadelphia Inquirer will start publishing the tabloid Daily News as an edition of the broadsheet Inquirer starting March 30.
The newspapers announced the change Monday.
Mark Frisby, publisher of the Daily News, says the combination will allow the papers to save on wire service fees and "take greater advantage of combined advertising revenue." Company officials say the change won't affect staffing, content or management.
Each paper will continue to report to circulation auditors under the Inquirer heading, but the circulation will be combined for auditing purposes.
The company, Philadelphia Newspapers Inc., filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last week.
