Press & Sun-Bulletin delivers latest Saturday print edition

It is a time of transition for the Press & Sun-Bulletin and its readers as the newspaper produced its final Saturday print edition.

The newspaper announced plans in January to discontinue the Saturday print edition as the industry continues to move towards online access.

Although circulation of the printed newspaper has fallen in recent years, several thousand people continue to pay for home delivery.

Subscribers will continue to have access to the Saturday Press & Sun-Bulletin electronic edition on the newspaper’s digital platform pressconnects.com.

The first Saturday edition of The Binghamton Press was printed on the afternoon of April 16, 1904. It featured a headline: RUSSIA LOSES TWO SHIPS. A report from London indicated that Japanese forces had blown up two Russian ships.

For decades, the Saturday Press was published as an afternoon newspaper. Eventually, the Saturday paper was converted to a morning edition.

In recent years, the Press & Sun-Bulletin has been printed at Gannett’s Canal Ponds production facility in the town of Greece, near Rochester. Printing times were adjusted when the company’s Johnson City print shop closed in 2018.

136 Gannett newspapers drop their Saturday print editions. Many major society newspapers will continue to print on Saturdays for the time being.
