The Flint Journal, in it's Thursday edition, outlines major changes in news delivery and pricing of the Journal. In their announcement, it was disclosed that they have plans to pursue a fresh, innovative approach to news delivery more closely aligned with the digital future.

In the process, a new company, MLive Media Group, has been formed to carry all the Booth Newspapers and MLive.com into the next era of news media. What does this mean to the local customer? More details after the jump.

The MLive Media Group will continue to deliver to readers and subscribers the most up-to-date news, and the days of publications will remain the same (Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday), however the cost is going up. The daily single copy for the Flint Journal will increase to $1, and the Sunday edition will be $2.

This will also affect a lot of employees as they close the Flint print production facility in February of 2012. All Flint Journal print operations and full-time jobs will be shifted to the Valley Publishing facility in Bay City. That means more jobs lost in Flint.
