a weekly title potentially called The Liverpool Post

Journalism  In case you haven't heard the story which broke at the Press Gazette earlier today, The Liverpool Daily Post which has been serving the city each morning for a hundred and fifty six years is to be reduced to a weekly title potentially called The Liverpool Post. 

Daily news will apparently still be served through the website, though that's no comfort to my parents for home the Post and the Liverpool Echo are their daily newspapers and who've never used computers.  They enjoyed both for, as Seven Streets notes, the different tones.

With the callibre of journalists working there (some of whom I'm acquainted with) I'm sure the weekly title will be an excellent read, might even become the Time Out of the area.  It's just a shame to see the narrowing of the legacy after so many years.
