The Columbus Dispatch is delaying the rollout of its new format.

A story posted to the Dispatch Web site says the delay was caused by mechanical problems at the paper’s production facility. Prototypes of the new paper have been significantly smaller, about the size of a magazine, and are said to use about 30 percent less paper than the current version.

The first issue of the new paper was scheduled for next Monday…a new rollout date has NOT been announced.
