MIAMI – Ready. Set. Go!

As announced March 22, the Miami News-Record will be moving to a new publication schedule featuring two enhanced editions loaded with rich media, robust content and a hyper-local reporting approach.

This change will provide subscribers delivery, by secure and weather protected mail, of MNR on Tuesdays and Fridays beginning April 18. With this shift, there will not be a Sunday, April 16 distribution.

“Our dedicated news and sports staff will continue to publish news from your community daily online at www.miamiok.com, but beginning April 18 the print edition will be published twice a week,” said Cheryl Franklin, Publisher. “We will not publish an April 16 paper.”

What to Expect

Both the Tuesday and the weekend Friday editions will supply a more substantial paper, and readers have a lot to look forward to according to managing news editor Dorothy Ballard.

"The most important thing I want our loyal readers, really the whole community to know is that this change is not just a cost-saving move, it is about providing a better paper," said Ballard. "Our audience is not losing a Sunday paper – they are gaining an enhanced weekend edition and Tuesday edition. Two winning prints of the best, most comprehensive content focused on Ottawa County. No more light papers and skim-through days. "

Daily news and sports will continue to be published online while the new enhanced print editions will feature developing news, coverage of events, comprehensive sports pages and photo pages along with the lead favorites of readers such as - comic pages, opinion columns, entertainment listings, and feature editorials.

Inserts and coupons once found in the Sunday edition will now be delivered with the enhanced weekend edition Fridays. As standard, coupons are valid on the days specified on their clippings.

Accessibility

The shift to hyper-local reporting with the enhanced editions also means more community input, according to Ballard.

"It is very important that our community knows we are accessible to them," said Ballard. "Don't hesitate to call or visit us. We want to cover your church activities, fundraisers, agency initiatives and businesses. The News-Record is about us, for us, right here in Ottawa County."
