Back in May, the New Orleans Times-Picayune became the most recent major metro daily to reduce its print publishing schedule, going from seven to three days a week. The story must really be important, because now 60 Minutes has sent Morley Safer to cover it. Watch this Sunday, Jan. 6 on your local CBS affiliate at 7:00 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times. We will.

Here’s the CBS promo blurb:

It’s a sure sign of the digital times when the New Orleans Times-Picayune, published every day for 175 years, goes to a three-day-a-week publishing schedule. As Morley Safer reports, it’s a fate many more newspapers face as the Internet becomes the source of almost instantaneous news. What does the Mayor of New Orleans think about this? See the clip below for a preview.
