Technology and new ways of communicating are reaching and affecting even an industry that’s been around for nearly 500 years.
As newspapers adjust to the online world and more rapid means of communicating information, their Web sites have become much more prominent and taken a larger role in dispensing the news.
Beginning Wednesday, the Effingham Herald will start a stronger online presence, with more continuous updates of stories and events and with an increased emphasis on video and news. Your print copy of the Herald isn’t going away. It’s been here for more than a century and it will remain here as your local news source.
Our publishing days are changing to once-a-week, with print editions of the Herald available Wednesdays. But the www.effinghamherald.net won’t be asleep between issues. Instead, it will become a vibrant outlet of news and information for the residents of Effingham County, updated constantly.
The Sept. 12 issue was our last Friday edition for the foreseeable future. But the Herald and its presence in the community aren’t going anywhere. Instead, we anticipate being even stronger down the road with an initiative to deliver news online, including our new mobile site.
You also can continue to follow the Herald on Facebook and Twitter for updates and visit our revamped Web site at www.effinghamherald.net.
