Al Día, Belo’s Spanish-language newspaper in Dallas has been scaled back to 2 print editions per week, in an effort to lower costs. The paper will now only be distributed on Wednesdays and Saturdays with a combined press run of about 215,000 copies. The paper previously was available six days a week, on a Monday to Saturday schedule.
The paper’s publisher, Alejandro Sánchez, told Hispanic Market Weekly that cutting back to two print editions a week represents significant savings on distribution, newsprint, paper and other supplies. At the time the article was published, Sánchez could not say how many positions would be eliminated.
