UC-Berkeley's Daily Californian is sadly not immune to the dreary fate of the newspaper industry and is implementing some drastic money-saving strategies in the upcoming year. The paper announced it will no longer publish a print edition on Wednesdays and plans to cut 25 percent of its staff, along with editor and reporter salaries.

The 137-year-old publication, which has a circulation of 10,000, has been independent from the university since 1971. The paper hopes to set up an endowment and is revamping its advertising strategy in hopes of returning to a five-issue-a-week schedule.
