by NATASHA LINDSTROM, Trib Total Media

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette plans to stop publishing print newspapers two days a week in late August, as part of a plan to transition the nearly 232-year-old daily newspaper from a print to a digital news operation, employees learned Wednesday.

“It’s the year 2018, and with the way people review and expect to review information and news, we think we’re doing the right thing,” said Keith Wilkowski, vice president of legal and government affairs for Block Communications Inc., the Toledo, Ohio-based company that owns the Post-Gazette. He emphasized by phone late Wednesday that the PG’s staff will continue to publish news every day and night via its website and other digital delivery platforms.
