Each day as I sit at my desk answering emails, taking phone calls or visiting with residents throughout the community, I am continually struck by how invested people are in The Press.
Oftentimes it’s a parent hoping for coverage of their child’s soccer game or an individual sharing their story with me. And sometimes it’s a local official reaching out to discuss a city issue or a school superintendent relaying district information.
It is an honor and awesome responsibility to be the keeper of these stories and all the pieces we publish each week in the pages of The Press and online. My team of talented writers, photographers and copy editors work diligently to provide you with the best, strongest and most accurate articles each and every week, and they’ve won national and state awards for their efforts. For all of us in the editorial department, your stories, your interests, your opinions are the core of community journalism and the heartbeat of The Press.
Your support over the years has been immeasurable, but the times are changing and I am asking for your continued support as we embark on our new print and digital subscription model – a plan that will allow us to continue to bring you the quality news and information you have come to expect from The Press over these past 20 years.
This week we launched our online subscription model, and we thank those who have enthusiastically responded by signing up. Now we are excited to offer you the additional benefits of our new subscription plan with a variety of choices.
There are a number of options to subscribe: print-only, digital-only or both print and digital subscription. Look for our ‘faithful subscriber ad campaign’ in the newspaper for subscription information or go to our website, www.thepress.net and click on the Subscribe button located at the top of the homepage. You will find all the subscription options available to choose from there, but if you would rather talk to someone, please call our office at 925-634-1441.
How we deliver the news to our East County families may be changing, but the quality of news we provide will never change. I thank you for your support and am excited for you to become an even larger part of The Press and the future of community journalism.
