Pittsburgh will become a one-newspaper town by year's end as Trib Total Media announced Wednesday that it will no longer publish a print edition of the Tribune-Review after Nov. 30. The newspaper, which has had a Pittsburgh edition since 1992, will go online-only Dec. 1st but will maintain a Pittsburgh-based newsroom. The Trib's restructuring plan will re-emphasize local news in its key markets by adding staff and other resources to its flagship Greensburg Tribune-Review and the Valley News Dispatch while keeping printed versions.
