The Coeur d'Alene Press and the other two daily newspapers owned by Panhandle businessman Duane Hagadone will switch from afternoon to morning publication beginning June 5.

Press Publisher James Hail said Friday the decision for his paper along with the Bonner County Daily Bee in Sandpoint and the Shoshone County News-Press in Wallace to switch to morning publication was made after six months of research.The Coeur d'Alene Press, established 96 years ago, has been printing morning editions on Saturday and Sunday.

With the new morning edition, Hail said the Press will introduce a full stock market report with listings for the New York, American and Over-the-Counter exchanges as well as a full complement of mutual funds. A full-color Sunday magazine will start June 11.
