I have always been a fan of reading the newspaper especially a morning paper. So when I heard the news that the Herald-Whig was making some operational changes, which included switching to a morning paper, I was glad to hear it.

The Herald-Whig, in a news release on Friday, made the move to “improve customer service, shore up home delivery and advance the newspaper’s mission to become a digital-first newspaper operation”.

Listed below are the upcoming changes to the Herald-Whig:

Effective October 6, the newspaper will become a morning paper and will begin utilizing the U.S. Postal Service for home delivery.

Single-copy issues will be on newsstands early each morning and same-day home delivery will be made by mail from all 38 local Post Offices throughout the region that will be delivering The Herald-Whig.

On Sundays subscribers who now get home delivery of the paper by carrier will continue to receive that service.

The news-gathering and reporting for both print and digital editions will continue seven days a week, but the print publication on Mondays will cease with the September 28 edition.

According to Ralph Oakley, CEO of Quincy Media, the parent company of The Herald-Whig, the newspaper, “like newspapers across the country, must enhance its digital operation. At the same time, we intend to continue to offer the same quality journalism that our readers have enjoyed for nearly two centuries.”
