The Christian Science Monitor has announced that it will axing its daily print edition in favour of a continuously-updated online website, starting in April 2009. However, it is not leaving the print medium, with a weekly edition being printed instead. This is part of a new multi-platform strategy for CSM to cut costs because of a decline of circulation.
While it is owned by a religious organisation, according to Wikipedia, it does not promote any religious doctrine in anyway – except for the front page. It has won seven Pulitzer Prizes, and has a record for its thoughtful writings and strong coverage on international issues. Writers under the new system will now be required to file stories on the web and update that a few times a day – with an expanded piece for the weekly edition.
