When will News be increased?

Going from a daily to just one weekly newspaper is unsatisfactory, says letter writer.

To the Editor,

Regarding the upcoming closure of the AV Times.

Randy Blair of Black Press says that we “will continue to provide comprehensive coverage of news and events that are relevant to the region.” How does he propose to achieve that when one weekly issue of the AV News is simply an advertising vehicle and only the Thursday edition is a complete paper?

We’ve gone from five issues a week with the AV Times to, in effect, just one issue of the AV News. That’s totally unsatisfactory.

We expect Mr. Blair to tell us when he intends to increase the days of the week that the AV News will be published and if he intends to charge for such increases.
