Fréttabladid Daily to Cancel Sunday Paper

By Iceland Review

One of the two major dailies in Iceland, Fréttabladid, has decided to reduce the number of publishing days by canceling their Sunday edition. Their last Sunday paper, at least for the time being, was published last Sunday.

Fréttabladid assistant director Steinunn Stefánsdóttir told Morgunbladid that their plan is to merge the Saturday and Sunday edition and to have more content in the Saturday paper instead.

According to Stefánsdóttir, Fréttabladid can save considerable amounts with these measures since printing and distributing the newspaper on Sundays is quite expensive, so no employees need to be laid off.
