Fort days trimmed

News from the editor of Sun Media's Fort Saskatchewan Record:

Next week you might notice something different about The Record. We’re re-launching as a weekly newspaper; delivered for free to your doorstep every Thursday and available for free at local gas stations and grocery stores.

The weekly format isn’t a stranger to these pages. For 81 years, The Record was a weekly newspaper – first published on Wednesday, April 5, 1922. We moved to our current twice-weekly format when The Record merged with the This Week in January 2003; just over six years ago.

The re-launch won’t affect the quality of reporting or the photos. It won’t affect the appearance of your favourite columns and features either. Also, as part of the re-launched Record, we’ll be unveiling a new logo, which will reflect the history of this city as well as this newspaper.

We’ll also be adding new features for you to enjoy every week, one of which will look back into our lengthy archives. We know you’ll enjoy the changes. We look forward to continue serving Fort Saskatchewan as its only local Alberta Press Council member for years to come.

See you next Thursday.

Conal MacMillan/Record Editor

  1. Isn't that what happened with Jasper? They went to being free to being closed.
