Windy City Times is changing its print production schedule for 2019. Effective this January, WCT will be primarily a biweekly print publication. Exceptions will include during Pride Month and for a special wedding guide and other stand-alone publications. The biweekly publication schedule starts with the Jan. 16 issue, followed by an issue Jan. 30.
WCT has been a free newspaper serving the Chicago LGBTQ since 1985. Since the mid-1990s, it has also grown as a daily online platform, and several years ago, the online audience surpassed the print publication readers. As more and more people receive their news daily online, WCT has kept pace on the web, email and social media. More than 125,000 unique visitors visit the WCT website each month, with 21,000 on Twitter, 15,000 on Facebook and 2,000 on Instagram.
Given changes in print advertising nationally in the LGBT press, more and more publications have changed production schedules, closed or gone online only. Windy City Times is going biweekly in an effort to streamline its efforts to cover Chicago's LGBTQ community.
