Dedham paper goes weekly, citing ad, circulation slump

The Daily News Transcript in Dedham is reducing the frequency of its print publication from five days a week to one on Oct. 1, according to a person briefed on the decision, who requested anonymity.

Declining circulation and an advertising slump led to the decision to go weekly, but GateHouse Media Inc., which owns the newspaper, plans no immediate layoffs, according to the source.
