CS Monitor goes online and weekly

As the final daily issue of the 100-year-old Christian Science Monitor was put to bed Thursday, the newspaper was planning its rebirth as a spruced-up weekly,” reports Editor and Publisher. “Meanwhile, the Monitor’s free Web site will get more frequent updates from dozens of its reporters, who will be expected to quickly post material to the site and take video and gather audio.”

The death watch continues for the San Francisco Chronicle, which “will be sold or closed unless major cost-cutting measures — including an unspecified “significant reduction in the number of unionized and non-union employees” — can be realized within weeks, parent company Hearst Corp. said Tuesday evening,” E&P adds.
