Herald publisher Rudi Alcott

For more than a century, we have strived to serve our readers as the leading source for local news and information.

As we look to the future, we remain committed to producing the same timely, accurate and trustworthy journalism you’ve come to expect from The Herald. To do that important work requires that we make some changes in the way you receive the newspaper.

As of Jan. 3, we will begin using the U.S. Postal Service for delivery. That means Tuesday through Saturday you’ll receive that day’s newspaper with your regular mail.

Beginning Saturday, New Year’s Eve, readers will receive an expanded weekend edition, packed with many of the same favorites you now see on Sundays, including our Opinion section, comics, Panorama and plenty of entertainment news and other popular features. Beginning Jan. 2, Mondays will be a digital-only day where you can read the entire edition online at HeraldNet.com or on the Herald app.

You will also see a few changes to our daily lineup in the coming days and weeks, many of them suggested by you, our readers.

Those include:

■ The TV book gets its own section in the weekend paper;

■ Expanded Food & Drink coverage will appear on Fridays;

■ Arts and Entertainment will move to Thursdays;

■ Home and Garden coverage will move to Wednesdays;

■ More sports will appear throughout the week.

Rest assured, we’ll continue to stay on top of the news, posting frequent updates every day on HeraldNet.com.

We understand change is hard and realize this may affect the time of day you receive the printed paper. This may take some getting used to, but please bear with us as we work through these changes. Your loyalty means everything to us, and we appreciate you as a reader. Without you, there is no Herald. Or local news coverage.

Please remember that your subscription includes 24-hour access to our online print editions: HeraldNet.com/print-editions at no extra charge. If you have not completed the sign-up for this free subscription benefit, please contact us or log on to HeraldNet.com and click the sign in button in the top right corner and follow the link for register today.

If you need help signing up or using our online services, please register for a free personal training session at: HeraldNet.com/training. We’ll hold numerous trainings on different subjects in the coming weeks. Should you have any further questions, please reach out to our circulation team at 425-339-3200.

Take care and thanks for reading The Herald. We remain committed to serving as your local news team.
