Two Georgia newspaper groups are consolidating their copy/pagination desks to become more efficient, streamline processes and improve their products.
Times-Journal, Inc., in Marietta and Southern Community Newspapers, Inc., in Lawrenceville earlier this month announced plans to consolidate their copy desk and pagination staffs.
The process began as each company transitions to the Town News Total CMS (Content Management System). The companies signed agreements with Town News in late 2018 and plan to produce their products on the new systems in early March. Once that's taken place, the consolidation of the pagination process will begin.More
In outdoor-minded Traverse City, Mich., the Record-Eagle sponsors community activities that include the TC Trimdown weight-loss contest and a series of road runs among other health-related events. It also publishes a health and wellness magazine every other month, serving a community on the shores of Lake Michigan and Grand Traverse Bay that depends on tourism, especially in the summer.
So it wasn't a stretch for the newspaper to create "Healthy Community" advertising packages last year. "The financial health of our local businesses is very important as well," said Shawn Winter, director of advertising.
The goal was to sign up businesses for monthly packages that included every form of advertising the Eagle-Record offered at different price points depending on size. Winter said the businesses could reach every audience, try out forms of advertising that were new to them and do so on monthly budgets and contracts of six months or a year.More
When the New England Patriots went down 28-24 to the Kansas City Chiefs with 2:03 remaining in the NFC Championship Game, The Telegraph's Patriots Pride advertising promotion was looking uncertain. Last year's series of wrap sections and posters proved successful, but the Patriots hadn't been as strong this season and plans had been scaled back.
But when the team came back to win in overtime, the promotion was a go for the paper in Nashua, N.H., a Boston-area bedroom community that covers a strong part of New England's fan base.
So starting this past Sunday, The Telegraph is selling ads around posters of players inserted each day and posted on the website NashuaTelegraph.com for downloading as part of the paper's E-Edition. On Saturday before the big game, the paper will run a four-page wrap around the regular eight-page A section. Should the Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII, readers may expect to see a commemorative special section as well.More
