CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) – The publisher of the Chattanooga Times Free Press is investing millions of dollars in a plan to move the newspaper’s print edition subscribers to a mostly digital format.
The plan will cease delivery of the print edition of the newspaper by mid-2022 except for Sunday.
The newspaper’s publisher, Walter E. Hussman Jr., has purchased thousands of Apple iPads to give to subscribers.
Hussman says the move will allow the newspaper to keep its newsroom intact.
Hussman started converting other papers to the digital replica format in 2018, starting with the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
