According to a missive sent today by Tim Weber, publisher of West Newsmagazine and Mid Rivers Newsmagazine , the Network will not be publishing an April 8, 2020 print addition.
The letter read in part:
"Due to the "Stay at Home" and Social Distancing guidelines issued by our local governments and health authorities, West Newsmagazine and Mid Rivers Newsmagazine will not publish an April 8, 2020 print edition. We hope to resume our normal publication schedule on April 22.
"These decisions are never easy ones. Our primary concern is with the health and well-being of our staff, our readers and our advertising partners. We are a local business, so we deeply feel the concerns brought on by these uncertain times.
"Here a few things we will be doing this publication break to best serve our staff, our community and our advertising partners:
" We have enabled all of our employees to work remotely. Our physical office is closed until further notice.
"We have shifted our reporting focus to our digital channels. We will increase the number of stories published to our websites on a daily basis and share them through our Facebook page."
