Southwest Times announces change in print schedule

The Southwest Times will change its print publication schedule beginning Monday, Oct. 27, going from a six-day to a five-day print format by discontinuing the printed edition of the Monday Southwest Times.
In making the announcement, Times Publisher Mike Williams said all content the paper’s readers normally would have found in the Monday edition will now be included in the Sunday morning and Tuesday evening editions. Any late-breaking stories or other news content, such as obituaries submitted after the Sunday edition deadline, will be published on-line Monday at www.southwesttimes.com and also will be printed in Tuesday’s print edition.
“We’ve been considering this change to a five-day print schedule for some time, and we believe this is the right time to make the move,” Williams said. “Except for a modest increase last fall, our subscription rates have remained largely unchanged for several years. By moving to a five-day print schedule, we’ll be able to keep them where they are.”
Also, with this move, it is important to note that all print subscribers will continue to get all the important information they’ve come to expect from the newspaper in other issues. “Our commitment to coverage will not change, only the days on which it is produced and distributed,” Williams stated.
He added that The Southwest Times’ monthly subscription rate of $9.50 for home-delivery is the lowest of any daily newspaper in Southwest Virginia. On the upcoming five-day per week printing schedule, Williams said, that is a tremendous bargain at just 43 cents per home-delivered newspaper.
“We work hard to bring our readers an interesting and informative newspaper, and it’s important to us that it remain affordable,” Williams stated. “By publishing Tuesday through Friday afternoons and on Sunday morning, our readers will still get all the local news and advertising they’ve come to count on, and the price of subscribing to the paper won’t increase.”
Letters have gone out to subscribers explaining the change.
The Southwest Times welcomes input from readers and encourages them to call or email the office with news items, photos and tips.
“We want and need the input of the community, and we encourage our community to engage us in the process of responding to your idea of what you want to see in your local newspaper,” Williams said. “Our staff will continue to work hard every day to bring readers local news they can’t get anywhere else. That dedication to delivering the news and covering every aspect of our hometown hasn’t changed a bit, and we believe our readers are going to like the expanded coverage of the Sunday morning edition of The Southwest Times.”
Anyone with questions about the new schedule may call The Southwest Times at 980-5220.
