Expanded Sunday edition coming to your doorstep — a day earlier
The Herald-Star will embark on a new era beginning Saturday with the debut of an expanded print edition that will be delivered to home subscribers and stores on Saturday morning and remain available throughout the weekend.
The Herald-Star will feature the best of the Saturday and Sunday editions in one package that readers can digest during the weekend. All of the sales fliers and advertisements from local stores that readers have come to depend on will now be available on Saturday, which will allow readers to better plan their weekend shopping trips.
Local news coverage will be unaffected by the change, said John Hale, publisher and circulation director of the Herald-Star. The newspapers’ team of award-winning news and sports reporters will continue to cover weekend news, events and sports as before, with stories appearing online immediately at heraldstaronline.com and also being part of Monday’s print edition a day later.
The production change will allow the Herald-Star to continue covering the essential local news that matters most to readers, Hale added.
“The current COVID-19 crisis has made it more important than ever for us to provide the vital information our readers depend on,” Hale said. “Residents in communities throughout the region know they can count on our coverage and viewpoints to help them put everything that’s happening into the proper perspective. That’s critical as we move forward and learn to navigate the new normal.”
The Sunday edition will continue to showcase an expanded Opinion and Community section, along with Sports and Life sections and the full-color comics section and weekend classified auto, real estate and jobs listings.
“We know that time is one of the most precious commodities our readers have, and by giving them an expanded Sunday edition of the Herald-Star on Saturdays they will be able to enjoy the paper — and take advantage of the sales — in a way that better fits their schedule,” Hale added.
