Our print days are changing, our mission isn’t

Posted

Where can you find the weather, a crossword puzzle, what’s coming up on TV, what your local elected leaders are doing and an historical fact that can spark conversation?

If you’re lucky enough to find answers to all of those questions in one place, will that source also tell you who has a birthday or anniversary coming up in the neighborhood, who’s died, who’s been married, who’s gotten divorced, who’s sold their homes and who’s had a brush with the law?

Will that one source also tell you what happened in Coats many years ago, where to get free meals for the kids when they’re out of school, what’s for sale, for rent and who’s hiring? How about which restaurants are still serving take-out and deliveries and who has the best deals in town?

There might be a lot of different places that answer at least one or two of the queries above, but there’s only one place — right here in your community — where you can find answers to all of these questions and more.

It’s The Daily Record.

And our mission to keep you informed, to hold leaders accountable, to find the truth when all you’re getting is spin, to brighten your day with a puzzle or a cartoon as we break down what’s happening around you and how it might affect you ­— isn’t changing.

Our print days are changing. The way we’re delivering the daily news is changing, but our mission isn’t changing. In fact, we’re doubling down to make sure you have access to all of the news you need whenever you need it and wherever you need it through our online efforts.

For our print subscribers, who will also have access to all of our stories online at no extra charge, we’re also going to give you two crossword puzzles in every edition and save some of our best features, columns and enterprise journalism to share with you on Tuesdays and Fridays. We’re going to save the front page of those editions just for you so you’ll have access to these stories before they go online.

We encourage you to download our free app - The Daily Record - on your smartphone, sign up for our newsletters at mydailyrecord.com and follow us on Facebook @MyDailyRecord, on Twitter @MydailyrecordNC and on Instagram @mydailyrecordnc to keep up with the latest news.

But whether you’re reading us in print twice a week or online every day — or both — we promise to be there for you and with you, to record the stories that tell who we are as a people and why the future should take note of what happened today. We’re still going to be writing that first draft of history. And we’re still going to be doing it all with you in our hearts and in our minds, because you’re our most important audience. We do what we do for you. We matter because you mattered first.

Please support the work of your local journalists by subscribing to read the stories we write for you and letting us know when you see something that needs our attention.

We’re in this together, even when we’re apart.
