Changes in the way The Times-Picayune gathers and reports news have revealed that there is a demand for a daily newspaper in New Orleans that will not be met by any New Orleans publications, beginning October 1, 2012. This would end a 175-year tradition of delivering a daily newspaper to New Orleanians and make New Orleans the largest city in the U.S. without a daily printed paper. At The Advocate, we think New Orleans and its citizens deserve a quality newspaper printed each and every day, and we intend to provide one.
We intend to continue providing subscribers with a daily newspaper that focuses on local, state and national news. While our headquarters will remain in Baton Rouge, our New Orleans newsroom will be made up of veteran New Orleans reporters managed by Bureau Chief Sara Pagones, a veteran New Orleans journalist.
We have earned the trust of Baton Rouge citizens by delivering a quality daily newspaper for more than a hundred years. And we are committed to doing the same in New Orleans.
Please support our commitment to New Orleans. Save the date for our official announcement on September 24. Look for more information soon. Become a subscriber to our daily New Orleans newspaper, and allow us a chance to earn your trust. Call 504-529-0522 to subscribe, newspaper delivery will begin October 1.
Thank you sincerely,
David Manship, Publisher , The Advocate
