MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The student newspaper at the University of Minnesota is cutting back to two print editions a week this fall.

The Minnesota Daily plans to shift more resources to online and digital reporting.

The newspaper used to publish five editions weekly during the school year. But the paper dropped the Friday print edition several years ago. Starting in September, the newsprint edition will come out only on Mondays and Thursdays.

Incoming editor-in-chief Dylan Scott tells the Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/29185gf) the move was “totally motivated by our readers’ habits.” A study showed students were more interested in getting news on their smartphones.

The student-run newsroom plans to roll out a “digital first” approach. The Daily also is investing in a new web platform to improve how its content appears on mobile devices.
