You asked for it and we’re delivering.
Black Press-owned newspapers the Williams Lake Tribune, the Cariboo Advisor and the Tribune Weekend, will be amalgamated beginning Sept. 4 to offer two completely free newspapers to more than 10,500 homes throughout the region.
This will include a Wednesday Williams Lake Tribune edition and a Friday Weekend Advisor edition — both filled with the award-winning content that has made the Tribune the community paper of record for more than 75 years.
Tribune publisher Lisa Bowering said she’s thrilled to be able to offer two fresh newspapers at a broader reach.
“I am so excited with the amalgamation of our three great papers,” Bowering said. “We want to give our community the absolute best newspaper we can with the broadest reach. That is why this amalgamation of the Tribune, its weekend edition and the Cariboo Advisor is such exciting news.”
“These changes will allow us to continue with an amazing editorial team that has the depth and experience to bring our community the complete story every time — whether it be hard news, business, sports or coverage of a community event.”
The Tribune’s website, www.wltribune.com, also no longer requires a subscription to access and will be updated with stories and current events on a daily basis. This includes our Facebook and Twitter pages.
“With our broader reach of more than 10,500 copies partnered with the free website with full page views and complete e-editions of the paper you will always have access to the breaking news you want,” she said.
The first edition of the Williams Lake Tribune Wednesday edition will hit the streets Sept. 4, followed by the first Friday Advisor Sept. 6.
Bowering thanked the Tribune’s valued subscribers and said they will be refunded by mail the current unused portion of their subscriptions.
Next week’s Tuesday and Thursday editions of the Tribune and Friday’s Tribune Weekend will be delivered to subscribers as usual.
