In The News

To Our Readers

As the fall football season and holiday shopping season swing into high gear, so will The Times-Picayune. Beginning on Sept. 6 and extending through the last New Orleans Saints game, we will publish bonus editions of The Times-Picayune on Saturdays and Mondays to be home-delivered to all three-day subscribers. Three-day home delivery subscribers will receive these full editions of the newspaper as a bonus to their subscription, at no additional cost to them.

The bonus editions of The Times-Picayune will contain a full lineup of news, sports and entertainment news, produced by Louisiana’s largest news organization for the state’s largest audience. Our team of 165 journalists, including 40 reporters and columnists covering Saints, LSU, Tulane, other college football and high school football, is unmatched in the state.

Our readers’ interest peaks in the fall and so does our advertisers’ desire to reach them. So we are expanding our print coverage to meet the heightened reader intensity and to serve our advertisers, who depend on us to reach their customers.

Besides the bonus home-delivered newspapers on Saturday and Monday this fall, we will continue our bonus home-delivered newspaper – the biggest of the year and in the state – on Thanksgiving Day, as well as our bonus home-delivered newspaper on Christmas Day.

On the remaining days – Tuesdays and Thursdays – The Times-Picayune will continue to publish its daily newspaper sold at more than 1,500 retail outlets and newspaper boxes throughout the metro area.

In another change, readers have asked for the traditional broadsheet newspaper. We’ve listened and will go back to the full broadsheet format for all editions of The Times-Picayune.

Also beginning Sept. 6, we will launch an improved, redesigned e-edition of The Times-Picayune. The e-edition will be an exact electronic replica of the printed newspaper of the day. All e-editions will be in the traditional broadsheet format. They can be easily perused, page to page, section to section. Readers will be able to browse through past e-editions of the paper going back two weeks. So whether you’re at home, at work or traveling, The Times-Picayune as it appears in print is yours to read, seven days a week.

In the Saturday and Monday home-delivered football season bonus editions of The Times-Picayune, readers will find a strong emphasis on our premier coverage of the Saints, LSU and Tulane football, college football and high school football, in addition to the news and entertainment news, puzzles, horoscopes, comics and classified ads they’ve come to expect of us.

The vast and growing part of our readership that visits our website, NOLA.com, for their news, sports and entertainment news will see continued improvements to the site, with a new events and entertainment calendar, expanded photo and video offerings and increased opportunities to engage and help shape our coverage. NOLA.com’s monthly unique visitors hit 5,569,544 for July of 2014. That’s 1,323,320 more than in July of 2013. NOLA.com has the highest penetration in the nation of any newspaper website in markets our size and larger.

We’re delighted to give our readers this expanded offering of printed newspapers and online content and to help our advertisers reach their best customers.
