Link to July 10 Superior Daily Telegram article, "Superior Daily Telegram announces new focus, publication".

Following a growing trend in the newspaper industry, The Daily Telegram will refocus its emphasis toward Internet publishing, company executives said today.

The Telegram’s Web page,, will become the primary source of day-to-day breaking news, said Publisher Ken Browall. It will feature printed news and photos of events as they happen seven days a week, along with audio and video clips.

The Daily Telegram is the second Wisconsin newspaper this year to move its emphasis toward the Internet. The 90-year-old Capital Times of Madison, which published Mondays thru Saturdays, became a primarily Internet-based news source on April 26. It offers a twice-weekly print edition.

Superior newsprint aficionados will now have to get a daily fix of local news here.

That's doubtful considering that Duluth-Superior is one of oldest demographic media markets in the nation.

Bye-bye Daily Telegram.
