Dear Loyal Readers

Please be advised that effective October 1, 2012 the Trail Times will be published four days per week, Tuesday through Friday.

It is with a heavy heart that I share this news: we’ve produced a daily newspaper in Trail since 1895. This decision was not made lightly; we laboured over all available options.

The media industry has evolved and as a result we’ve learned to embrace e-editions, Facebook and Twitter as new platforms to market our product. These newer platforms take a significant portion of our manpower to manage, update and moderate. However, at this point in time they create little additional revenue to offset the increased costs.

Prepaid subscribers will have the length of their subscriptions extended to compensate for the number of issues originally purchased.

At this time I would like to express my deepest gratitude for your continued support.

Sincerely,Barbara Blatchford, PublisherTrail Times
