The Oregonian ends a full print era (after 142 years)

By Taxpayers Association of Oregon

The Oregonian has ceased to be a full week print newspaper starting today.

They have discontinued printing Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.   Those editions used to sell 15,000, but dropped to 4,000 over the years.   Those missing days will instead be featured online.

The Oregonian lasted longer than most newspaper on the downsizing.

Other local Oregon newspapers have changed as well.  The Portland Tribune is under a big paywall.  The Salem Statesman Journal and Eugene Register Guard are also under a big paywall while shrinking their local news coverage.

The Medford Mail Tribune has closed. The Lebanon Express and Ashland Daily Tidings closed in 2023.  The 100+ year-old Catholic Sentinel has closed.

We hope for a strong media presence in Oregon, but each media outlet needs to adapt to the times.
