Like most market-dominant daily papers, the MJ is a seven-day paper. The Mining Journal is distributed over a wide area, in part because Marquette is the largest city for a considerable radius in any direction. The MJ can be found in 14 of the 15 Upper Peninsula counties on Sunday; distribution on other days is limited because of budget reductions. The Mining Journal either maintains bureaus in many of the cities of the U.P., or shares news coverage with other Ogden owned papers.
