This fall a new digitally focused media group will launch, replacing The Oregonian as we know it. This Oregonian Media Group will print the paper seven days a week, but only make it available for home delivery on four days: Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, with the option of receiving the Saturday paper as well. You will still be able to purchase a paper at newsstands every day.

Oregonian staff were told to expect significant layoffs.

This model replicates what’s happened already with the Plain Dealer in Cleveland (and similar, though not identical to the Times Picayune in New Orleans).

We’ll find out what this means for staff and readers of the paper.

What’s your reaction to the news?

Editor’s Note: this post was edited to reflect the fact that the paper will be delivered four days a week.
