As the Siftings Herald prepares for its transition from daily to twice-weekly on November 2, many readers have been wondering how this affects their currently active subscriptions.
The Siftings Herald’s upcoming new rate will $49 per year. This means after the October 28 edition, the Siftings’ circulation office will be calculating every subscribers’ balance on their respective accounts and reassigning how many issues remain.
For example, if a reader has $20 left on his or her balance, that reader will more than likely be receiving 13 weeks of issues vs. 9 weeks. It all depends on what rate is active (seniors, etc.) at the time of the transition.
If readers have any questions, please call the Siftings Herald’s office at (870) 246-5525, to find out how many issues (or weeks) will remain.
In a preview of the new Wednesday edition, which will be distributed countywide as the new version of “Super Tuesday,” most Wednesday papers will be 12 pages or more with two sections.
The new Wednesday A section will include four pages of local, regional and state news, a dedicated School news page, and a new local Opinion page.
The new Wednesday B section will include three pages of local, regional and state sports as well as two pages of Comics, Sudoku and Crosswords and the Classified page.
The new Wednesday B front will feature Sports in full color.
For the new Saturday edition, most Saturday morning papers will be 16 pages or more with two sections.
The new Saturday A section will include four pages of local, regional and state news, a dedicated School news page, a local Opinion page, and the traditional Church directory.
The new Saturday B section will include three pages of local, regional and state sports as well as two pages of Comics, Sudoku and Crosswords, a Food page and a Healthy living page.
Saturday’s edition will also feature an all new weekly TV listings section inside, included free with every Saturday paper.
Similar to Wednesday, the Saturday’s B Sports front page will be in full color, and for the first time ever for the Siftings Herald, next day coverage of Friday night football and other sports (as late games and press deadlines permit.)
Popular features like Dear Abby will run twice in each paper as will certain Comic strips to maintain storylines. New submitted content, opinion page and newsroom deadlines for the public will be announced the week of the transition.
