From the Maitland Mercury report:
The Maitland Mercury will be published three days a week instead of five under proposed changes presented to staff yesterday.
Employees at the Mercury and other Hunter mastheads, including the Newcastle Herald, Cessnock Advertiser and Dungog Chronicle, were briefed on Fairfax Media plans to restructure the Newcastle and Hunter operations of its Australian Community Media (ACM) division.
Under the proposal the Mercury will move from publishing Monday to Friday to publishing three days a week and the Singleton Argus will move from publishing twice a week to a weekly edition.
