Major changes are coming to the Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News amid an industry slump.
The Detroit Media Partnership runs the business operations of the papers. It says it will hold a news conference Tuesday to announce the changes, which include a focus on "digital delivery methods."
The partnership didn't give any details in its statement Monday, but speculation about the changes has centered on fewer days for home delivery, smaller editions at newsstands and a big online push.
John Morton, an independent newspaper analyst in Maryland, says the Detroit papers have suffered more than most because of the drop in auto sales, real estate and employment.
The Free Press is owned by Gannett Co. and the News by MediaNews Group.
