Times-Picayune to sell newsstand tab three days a week

Starting this summer, the Times-Picayune’s TPStreet will be sold on newsstands Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and cost 75 cents, says editor Jim Amoss. The New Orleans paper currently has a Wednesday, Friday and Sunday home-delivered print edition.

In addition, a special electronic edition will be available every morning to three-day subscribers of the home-delivered newspaper. Sunday-only subscribers will have access to the Sunday e-edition. The e-edition will offer an exact electronic version of The Times-Picayune on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays (the Early Edition of Sunday) and Sundays, and of the TPStreet tabs on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

“In TPStreet, we sought to develop a publication that would address our single-copy readers and also respond to a repeated request from our home-delivery subscribers for a front-to-back newspaper reading experience in the e-edition on days we don’t offer home delivery,” says publisher Ricky Mathews.
