Glitch Delays USA Today Deliveries

FRAMINGHAM (04/14/2000) - USA Today has suffered delivery delays for the past few weeks due to a glitch in its production software.

The bug impacted the transfer of news and advertising pages to its 36 print sites, officials from USA Today said. As a result, Thursday's paper went to print two hours late and delayed deliveries to the East Coast, said Steve Anderson, a spokesman for the Arlington, Virginia-based newspaper. Time zone differences eased the problem in the West Coast.

Anderson said the production software was recently upgraded and the glitch has been fixed. The problems aren't related to a recent design change, he added.

The paper issued an apology to its readers in yesterday's edition.
