Sun sets on print, to rise with dig­i­tal

Tweed Daily News - - FRONT PAGE -

THE groundswel­l of sup­port for the Tweed Daily News in re­cent weeks has been over­whelm­ing and heart­en­ing. From peo­ple writ­ing in with Letters to the Editor to those tak­ing to so­cial media to share their sto­ries of the im­por­tance of the lo­cal news­pa­per, the sup­port for what we do has been greatly ap­pre­ci­ated.

The de­ci­sion to close the print edi­tion was an in­cred­i­bly dif­fi­cult one and we un­der­stand the dis­ap­point­ment. But it’s the end of the chap­ter, not the story What we need to make clear, how­ever, is we are not go­ing away as a news provider. There are still jour­nal­ists em­ployed to cover vi­tal sto­ries for the Tweed com­mu­nity.

Across our re­gion, the ma­jor­ity of our cus­tomers are now us­ing our dig­i­tal plat­form with thou­sands pay­ing to be in the know. Our job is to do all we can to make that ser­vice the best it can be. We have re­porters com­mit­ted to bring­ing you the sto­ries that mat­ter. And with a net­work the size of News, we will be able to en­sure they can fo­cus on the lo­cal stuff while the rest of the or­gan­i­sa­tion de­liv­ers sto­ries from around the state, na­tion and the world in news, sport, life­style and the like. If you are not al­ready a sub­scriber, but still want lo­cal news, read about our spe­cial of­fer which in­cludes a Sum­sung tablet worth $249 on page 12 or visit tweed­dai­lynews.com.au
