Morning Publishing To Replace Afternoon Tradition

The editor and publisher of the Charleston Daily Mail says she's hopeful the 6,000 customers who take both the Daily Mail and Charleston Gazette will continue to do so even with the Daily Mail's decision to become a morning paper.
"You can read the Daily Mail any time of the day you like," Nanya Friend said. "We're just going to give it to you earlier in the day."

The paper made the decision to switch after studying the possibility for a few months. Friend says they had to determine if the production staff that handles both papers could do both in the morning. She says they believe they can. The first Daily Mail morning edition will roll off the presses Monday, Jan. 5, 2009.

Friend says dual customers should continue to take both papers. "They'll be interested in seeing, as they always have, two different points of view on the editorial page and they know that we go after different stories and we try to beat each other, we compete," she said.
