No More Soviet-style Billboards in Madison

The Capital Times is dead as a print news daily:

Late this spring The Capital Times will dramatically enhance its Internet site as well as alter its print frequency from six days to two days per week to address changing habits of afternoon newspaper readers, company executives announced Thursday.

Publisher Clayton Frink said the newspaper's online site,, will feature increased volume, depth and timeliness of news, opinion and other information. He said the printed edition of the newspaper will expand its distribution by about five times and switch from six-day publication to two weekly tabloid-size editions.

That twice a week tabloid will be distributed free around the city and in the Wisconsin State Journal in Dane County.
