The Evening Post announces name change and move to drop Saturday edition
The Evening Post has today announced it is to change its name to The Post, reflecting its transition to morning publication in June 2009.
From May the title, which is owned by Northcliffe Media, will become a five day operation, ceasing publication on Saturdays.
An extended Friday edition with a comprehensive weekend guide for Bristol will be launched simultaneously, while The Western Daily Press will offer readers an alternative on Saturday.
Venue magazine will become a digital-only product, with its listings and review content also powering the Friday Post, as well as the Bristol Observer and the local edition of Metro.

Folio magazine, currently jointly produced with Venue, will remain as a stand-alone monthly.
Bristol News and Media publisher Alan Renwick said: "We have undertaken an exhaustive review of our portfolio and the changing needs of readers and advertisers in our market.
He added: "These planned changes give us a more focused and flexible set of publications which are much more closely aligned to our customers and give us a better platform for future growth."
A total of 20 positions are at risk of redundancy as a result of the proposed changes.
