Saturday edition of Lebanon Daily News now available exclusively with online e-Edition

·3 min read

Today marks a milestone in the history of this newspaper. This is the first Saturday on which the Lebanon Daily News will be available exclusively on our e-Edition. And it’s the beginning of some additional features and puzzles.

If you are a subscriber, you already have access to this electronic edition, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Several longtime readers have told me they will miss having a local newspaper in their hands each morning, and I appreciate that. I have talked with readers who have received this paper for more years than I’ve been alive. They feel a deep affection for it.

But this business evolves constantly as the habits of readers evolve. Today, most people access us online. This change on Saturdays is designed to improve those online efforts as we continue to offer print delivery six days a week.

I encourage you to try the e-Edition not just as a substitute for Saturday, but to enhance your overall and everyday experience with the paper. The e-Edition offers everything the daily paper does as well as many extras.

Subscribers can access the e-Edition at ldnews.com/eedition. We update it early each morning, and you can:

  • Turn pages or skip to your favorite sections

  • Save, share, print and download articles or entire pages

  • Access archived editions

  • Listen to articles read aloud

  • Decrease or increase text size for easy reading

Your local e-Edition also includes bonus magazines on various topics of interest and USA TODAY content. For quick tips on how to navigate the e-Edition, visit ldnews.com/eeditiontips.

You can now look at every newspaper in the USA TODAY Network through the e-Edition. That includes some of the nation’s best newspapers, such as the Indianapolis Star, the Detroit Free Press and the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. And it includes all 14 Gannett newspapers across Pennsylvania.

Of course, you can always keep up with local news at ldnews.com.

You might also notice some changes to our puzzles, comics and columns. Fear not — we are not losing any of these standards. The layout will be a bit different. And some brands might change. But you will still see an array of word games, crosswords and advice columnists. In fact, we are adding a few new puzzles and games to the mix.

These additions will be seen every day of the week. And you will still be able to pick up a copy of the paper Sunday through Friday, or get it delivered to your home.

There is one feature we are dropping — the TV listings grid. We understand that some readers still turn to this as a guide, but as TV viewing has changed radically, this grid has served fewer and fewer people.

In sum total, the additions and the benefits of these changes are significant. The e-Edition offers more value than ever before. We are adding to the mix of puzzles and features.

This is all part of our effort to refine our offerings and give all of our customers the most for their money. We value our subscribers and hope to give you enjoyable experiences on whatever platforms work best for you.
