    In a lot of markets, Monday can be a tough sell.

    We have begun printing our Monday as a TMC within our home county, boosting total circulation to somewhere in the 50K range from 36+ ... that has had something of an improved effect on advertiser interest.

    I will not be surprised if other papers follow suit. Monday is pretty worthless for advertisers and from an editorial standpoint.

    It would be hard to imagine any paper in an NFL market dropping a Monday edition.

    Yeah, but what if they boiled it down to a one-section paper, fronted by the NFL team's game, etc., etc., I could see that.

    I've made the pitch to switch from no paper Saturday to no paper Monday, but they say they can't because they'll lose a Dillard's ad.

    Pittsburgh isn't going to notice. It's a small town where (at least in sports) Saturday and Sunday will sell a few papes. Monday, it's an easy drop.
    That doesn't mean everywhere. But in Pittsburgh, they could easily go to the Web and be just fine.

    As part of my first job (30,000-circ paper, rural Midwest), I had to hang out for 8 hours every Sunday, just in case something blew up. The entire year I was there, nothing did, and therefore the entire Monday paper consisted of wire items and things written prior to Saturday.
