We just wanted to let you know that with many of the lockdown restrictions ending, Lagniappe is back to printing weekly. We may not be as big or have as many pages, but we still believe it’s very important to provide top quality news for our community. And that will not change.
But we’re not going to sugar-coat it, putting out a newspaper right now is much harder than it was before the COVID-19 crisis. We know that’s probably the same for many, many businesses.
So, if you are a regular reader or someone who thinks it is important that a community have a newspaper, now is the time to subscribe to our website and support Lagniappe. We have delivered more than 15 million free newspapers throughout this community over the past 18 years, but the response to the COVID crisis means we’re going to have be be a leaner publication for a while, at least.
We realize readers have become used to free news online, but that is changing. Most news sources are moving to paywalls. We did so a year ago and thankfully the number of you willing to support your local newspaper grows every day. But we still need more of you.
If you’ve been a Press-Register reader, you’ve always paid to pick one up. We hope you’ll think of a digital subscription the same way. It gives you unrestricted access to everything we cover, breaking news, award-winning features and years of archives for just 21 cents a day. And the subscription is good on five devices, so that little bit of money can take care of the whole family.
For 18 years Lagniappe has bucked the trends. Other newspapers have dwindled or gone, but we’ve continued to grow even while competing against huge newspaper chains and internet behemoths. That’s because we have always concentrated on local news and local readers and advertisers have found that valuable.
It’s important to remember that as we move out of this crisis at some point, other local news is still going to be important, and Lagniappe will still be there reporting and making sure you’re informed. Your online support will help us continue providing top-notch news for decades to come.
