The Christian Science Monitor published its last daily print edition today. The 100 year old paper announced it was going weekly last October, but will continue to publish daily online. In a letter detailing the changes, editor John Yemma takes a distinctly glass half full approach.
And with the launch of our new weekly print edition, the Monitor is becoming more vital than ever.
No longer inked on wood pulp, no longer trucked from printing plants to your mailbox, no longer published only five days a week, the daily Monitor is now a dynamic online newspaper on all days.
The Monitor is available everywhere — St. Louis, Johannesburg, Boston, Buenos Aires, Jakarta, Toronto — the instant you go to our website, CSMonitor.com.
That’s the spirit. And with an online audience that is forty times the size of their print one they clearly have something to feel optimistic about.
