CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The Charleston Daily Mail and The Charleston Gazette have combined their newsroom operations into one newspaper.

The daily newspapers announced the decision on Sunday in a statement posted on their websites. The Charleston Gazette-Mail published its first edition on Monday.

The statement says the newspaper will continue to publish separate editorial pages.

According to the statement, the move “is not one paper gobbling up the other,” but will combine newsroom staffs to bolster investigative reporting and increase online breaking news and multimedia stories. The statement did not immediately address newsroom positions.

The newspapers are owned by The Daily Gazette Co. Their advertising, circulation and production departments were merged into one corporation on Jan. 1, 1958.
