Cortland Standard to End Monday Print – Goes to 5 Day Print Schedule


Increasing cost of materials was the dominant factor when it came to the difficult decision for the Cortland Standard to end their Monday print, the newspaper announced on July 3rd.

“This is not a decision [Cortland Standard] made lightly, and we delayed taking this step for as long as we could, but it has become necessary for the Cortland Standard to survive. Along with everyone else we’ve been dealing with huge cost increases over the last several years.” President and Publisher of the Cortland Standard, Evan Geibel said to X101 News.

The Cortland Standard will now have a print paper schedule of Tuesday through Saturday beginning on July 17th with hopes the 5 day is minimally disruptive.

Readers of the Standard should not expect to see less news though. Geibel said that readers will still receive a week’s worth of news and the Cortland Standard will do everything it can to provide the Cortland area with news coverage, including breaking news.

When asked about refunds on the paper, Geibel said the paper is charged by the week and not day and ensures readers would still receive a week’s worth of news. Geibel noted that with breaking news stories, they will be uploaded to the newspapers website, available for subscribers to read.
