This week, The Press of Atlantic City goes into another printing association with the Star-Ledger in Newark. For as far back as quite a while, our daily paper has been printed by Gannett, first in Freehold, at that point later in Cherry Hill. After our agreement finished, we expected to locate another printer for our day by day distribution.
Furthermore, we are satisfied to report that our first daily paper imprinted in Newark will be distributed on Tuesday.
There are a few focal points, and a few hindrances, with our new course of action. First of all, in light of the fact that the Newark press is more up to date than the ones we had already utilized, the new daily paper will have better proliferation and shading capacities. The paper itself will be somewhat heavier, which implies less twisting, crinkling or tearing. Furthermore, the pages will be fairly more extensive than what we had, giving the substance somewhat more space to move around.
Our print due dates won’t change. What’s more, with a quicker and more proficient press, trucks ought to have the capacity to leave on time, getting papers to the dispersion place for a smooth handoff to our devoted neighborhood transporters.
As a vital piece of our progress to the new printer, we will lose the every day and Sunday Living segment and supplanting it with a Living page inside the World area. Substance, for example, funnies and week after week segments will move somewhere else in print. A lot of that highlights substance will in any case be accessible online at www.pressofac.com. At The Shore, our excitement magazine, and Press Play, the TV direct that distributes on Fridays, will proceed as they have.
Here’s a gander at what will change with Living substance, starting on Tuesday: • Movie audits will show up in At The Shore every Thursday. • Comics will move to Sports day by day. Dear Abby will keep running on the funnies page amid the week, as it does now on Thursdays and Fridays. Carolyn Hax’s segment, Tell Me About It, will just seem on the web. • The Living page inside World will include:
m Monday: Dr. Nina Radcliff wellbeing segment
m Alternate Tuesdays: Star Watch by Fred Schaaf
m Wednesday: Franny the Shopaholic by Franny d’Angelo
m Thursday: Savvy Senior by Jim Miller
m Friday: Sound Advice by Don Lindich
m Saturday: Antiques and Collectibles by Alyce Hand Benham
o Sunday: Dear Abby
As we push ahead, we will keep on offering however much substance as could reasonably be expected over our numerous stages, both print and advanced.
