‘The Daily’ Now Available in Vertical Format Only Following 30% Reduction in Staff

It is widely known that digital publication The Daily for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad has been facing difficulties over the past several months, and now News Corp. has taken action by reducing the staff associated with the digital publication by 30 percent and producing the newspaper in vertical orientation only.

By eliminating 50 of its 170 employees, The Daily will now have less sports coverage and editorial pieces. The digital newspaper, which carries a $39.99 annual subscription on iPad, could be on the chopping block if it these changes fail to produce the desired result. The publication can only lose millions of dollars for so much longer before it gets the metaphorical axe.
