The Oregonian announced Thursday it will be cutting home delivery to four days a week beginning Oct. 1.
A posting on The Oregonian's website says the change comes as part of the formation of Oregonian Media Group, a new company launching this fall.
The daily newspaper will still be sold at outlets around Oregon and southwest Washington.
Home delivery subscribers who get the newspaper Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be able to view a digital edition of the newspaper seven days a week.
As a result of the changes at The Oregonian, "some employees will lose their jobs," according to the newspaper's publisher.
The company planned to start notifying employees of their status beginning Thursday.
The Oregonian created a "frequently asked questions" page for the switch here.
