Milwaukee newspapers merging

The Milwaukee Journal, one of the nation's largest remaining afternoon newspapers, will merge with its morning counterpart, the Milwaukee Sentinel, April 1 and publish as a morning paper, the papers' owner announced Tuesday. The combined newspaper will be named the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The move reflects rising newspaper production costs, primarily the cost of newsprint, as well as consumers' preference for reading morning newspapers over afternoon newspapers.
