Christian Science Monitor Will Publish on $12 Million a Year

John Yemma, recently appointed editor of the Christian Science Monitor,  tells of the plan and the costs for running  the newspaper when it begins printing Fridays only and goes mostly online.

The cost for an approximately 80-person newsroom and eight foreign bureaus would be just $7 million a year, if it were all online,  and $12 million with the Friday print edition.  In this in-depth interview with Leonard Witt, Yemma tells how he believes the newsroom and journalism will be invigorated.
