Near midnight on May 23, 2012, the New York Times broke the story that Advance Publications, the New York-based owner of about three dozen US newspapers, would use its 175-year-old New Orleans Times-Picayune as the testing ground for a risky experiment. The Picayune—which won fierce local devotion, international acclaim, and two Pulitzer Prizes for its heroic coverage of the aftermath of 2005’s Hurricane Katrina—would become a three-day-per-week publication and shift its focus to its much derided nola.com Web site, leaving New Orleans as the largest US city without a daily newspaper. The profitable newspaper, with the country’s highest readership penetration in a city its size, then proceeded to purge its veteran newsroom, antagonize much of the city and state, attract negative national and international attention, and jeopardize its vaunted reputation—all in an effort to create a new blueprint for the profitable operation of American newspapers in today’s increasingly digital world.
