Trinty confirms Brum Post may go weekly

Press Gazette reports today that, as predicted by the NUJ back in June, Trinity Mirror confirms it is considering switching the daily Birmingham Post to a weekly and turning the Birmingham Mail into a morning paper printed overnight.
The company said further job losses across its Midlands operation were "inevitable" as it reviewed all options for reducing the cost base of the business.
Trinity added that it had launched a consultation with staff, advertisers and union representatives to review its operation in the Midlands to ensure its "future stability and viability".
Trinity said consultations were currently at an early stage, no decisions had yet been made and the business cases for any possible changes had yet to be developed.
