(Pittsburgh) -- The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has announced it will stop publishing the newspaper two days a week.

According to a letter sent to the newspaper's employee union, the newspaper is shrinking its printing schedule as part of a plan to become a digital news organization.

The change will go into effect August 25. 

Which days will be cut has not been specified.

Senior Human Resources Manager Linda Guest says in the letter, "the nature of our operations will change substantially."

The owners of the 232-year-old paper, Ohio-based Block Communications, have not responded to requests for comment.

The Post Gazette attracted national attention earlier this month when it fired veteran editorial cartoonist Rob Rogers.
