Big changes at the Star

Larger print edition moves to Thursday

The Nelson Star, your leader for local coverage on all platforms, has some news of its own to deliver.

We’re switching our print edition to a single, larger product that will be available every Thursday beginning May 3. And as we make this move, we’ll be continuing to enhance our popular online product at nelsonstar.com and on the Star’s Facebook page.

“The Nelson Star is the leading local source of news across all platforms, including digital, social media, and print,” said publisher Eric Lawson. “Having one print issue per week will combine with our strong digital presence to enhance our already strong, and steadily growing, connection with our readers.

“Our online page views reached 2.5 million last year and are still increasing, combining with our loyal print readership to ensure that we connect the citizens of Nelson and surrounding areas to their communities. The Star’s commitment to local journalism will continue to be our foundation in the multi-media world.”

Our regular delivery schedule will continue as usual, but now on Thursdays with the West Kootenay Advertiser inserted in each edition.
