New Hampshire daily switches to weekly

After two years in business, the Manchester (N.H.) Daily Express has become a weekly. "The paper's owners found the community embraced the local news, but advertising levels could not support the cost of publishing the paper five days a week," the Express said in a front-page story Wednesday. The paper's owners have an alt-weekly and a motorcycle monthly in Manchester. Two newsroom staffers lost their jobs in the change while other employees will be reassigned. At right is a full-page house ad the Express ran announcing the switch.
