    I subscribe to three newspapers online, but I get only one of them delivered daily in hard copy.

    I don't know the circulation numbers but when I lived in OKC 1965-67, The Oklahoman had a substantial morning and evening newspaper... I don't know when I had time to read both. Evening paper had discontinued when I returned in 1972-73. I believe the metropolitan population has doubled since 1965 but the morning paper is now pretty skinny except Sunday....

    Pittsburgh (which has a metropolitan area population nearly 1,000,000 greater than that of OKC), has only one daily newspaper left, and it's no longer a daily--it publishes only 5 days a week.

    The Oklahoman is owned by the Gaylord family, one of the quietly wealthy families in the US, who own or owned Opry Land, The Broadmoor, a whole passel of TV and radio stations, a chunk of the Thunder and who knows what else... maybe the newspaper is just a hobby.

    You can hear the Grand Ol' Opry in Nashville Tennessee, Its the home of country music on that we all agree, But when you cross that ol' Red River hoss, That just don't mean a thing..

    That's what the WaPo is to Bezos, and may actually be the way print survives.

    The Post and The Times are both doing very well and make a profit...but yes a lot of locals aren't doing well...

    IIRC, both of those papers have had serious staff reductions in recent years because they weren't doing so very well.

    Indeed...a few years ago....but in the last few years both have made a comeback...

    "The Post’s newsroom will reportedly grow by 8% to more than 750 employees, making it the third largest newsroom in the country, behind The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, which employ 1,500 and 1,307 respectively. The new hires will focus on expanding the Post’s mobile video, breaking news, podcasting and newsletter operations. The paper will also create a “rapid-response” investigative team."

    And the Times is at an all time high in subscriptions...

    "The number of paid subscriptions, digital and print, reached 4.7 million, a high. Nearly 3.8 million people pay for the publisher’s online products, with the company adding a net total of 197,000 customers for its news, crossword and cooking apps during the quarter, a sharp increase from the 109,000 subscriptions added in the same period in 2018. Of those subscribers, 131,000 came for the digital news product."
