What you’ll find in Wednesday’s new print edition

Solutions journalism from The Salt Lake Tribune’s Innovation Lab will anchor the front page.

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Executive Editor Lauren Gustus.

Thanks for picking up the first-ever midweek print edition of The Salt Lake Tribune.

We are doing our best to listen to our readers, and one of the things a number of you told us is that you’d like to be able to thumb through the paper more often.

We’re now offering two days a week — Sundays and Wednesdays — at no additional cost for existing print subscribers.

The Wednesday paper will look different from the weekend edition, with more of a traditional newspaper front page. There are more stories on the cover and — as much as we love our big photos on Sunday’s A1 — there is less space allocated to visuals.

Here’s a look at what else you will find in the Wednesday newspaper.

The edition will be anchored with solutions-oriented reporting from The Tribune’s Innovation Lab, a three-member reporting team that’s working to elevate how we might do better across a number of challenges in Utah. One week, the team may tackle how we might decrease agricultural water use. Another week, it may be a look at how private businesses are working to close the gender wage gap in Utah.

As you take a look inside the paper, you’ll find local reporting from across Utah. In 2021, The Tribune launched the Utah News Collaborative, which is a group of news organizations across the state that shares daily reporting that would be of interest elsewhere. The idea: News organizations share daily stories on the newest coronavirus case count or from the governor’s latest news conferences, reducing duplication so they instead spend more time on the local news that is relevant to their readers.

Our newly formed culture team — culture reporter Palak Jayswal, Utah Eats reporter Stefene Russell and editor Sean P. Means — will have you covered with openings and closings, interesting stories about local makers and artists, and a look at what’s happening downtown. You’ll also see Kaitlyn Bancroft’s byline in our culture pages; she anchors our 150 Things To Do newsletter, and her reporting will also appear here.

Opinion will be homed to the second front, or B section, of the paper. Look for staff-published editorials and letters to the editor, plus a Pat Bagley cartoon.

You’ll also find comics, puzzles and a daily crossword. Of note: Daily comics series will continue in the bonus e-edition. So there are two pages of comics available on Wednesdays — one in print and the e-edition and a second page only available in the e-edition (which continues the story you may have been following in your favorite strip on Tuesday).

The print paper will include local sports, state, national and international news of note, obituaries and classifieds.

And online, a smaller, separate e-edition will include additional live sports, news and daily comics pages.
