KANSAS CITY STAR PREPS READERS FOR NEWS FAIL VIA TRAGIC E-MAIL BLAST!!!
Special thanks to KICK-ASS TKC READERS who sent this our way so we could post it FIRST . . . Here's run down a tacit admission that the news is now online. Take a look . . .
Important account information from The Kansas City Star
The Kansas City Star is changing to ensure we are able to meet the needs of our readers and the communities we serve long into the future. More and more of our customers are engaging with our local journalism online. This is not unique to the Kansas City metro, it is a widespread trend in journalism, and in fact, many industries.
Starting March 14, we will launch a new weekend package with expanded newspapers on Fridays and Sundays and access to the Saturday edition exclusively online. While we will no longer produce a printed newspaper on Saturday, we will continue to publish the strong independent local journalism you expect from The Kansas City Star online seven days a week.
Here are the changes you can expect:
- Friday: The newspaper will have new puzzles as well as a new themed section called “Uplift,” your source of good news for the weekend.
- Saturday: We invite you to “go digital” and visit our website or eEdition, which replicates the experience of a printed newspaper online. You’ll also find our EXTRA EXTRA digital supplement with more national, international and entertainment news and Sports Xtra, our sports supplement.
- Sunday: In addition to the usual comics content, we will add the puzzles and comics that you love to read in your Saturday paper.
- If you are receiving your weekly TV book with your Saturday delivery it will now be delivered on Sunday.
With this change, your new subscription package will now include delivery on Sunday - Friday. Your subscription rate will remain the same and will also continue to include 7-day unlimited digital access. We now provide many different ways to connect with The Kansas City Star -- on our kansascity.com website, on mobile apps, newsletters, and on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram. These digital platforms are accessible wherever you go and whenever you want.
You readers could go on Twitter for free and get all the same stuff or sign up for WaPo or NYT where all the exact same sentiments start first.
Then again, the smartest news local news denizens hang out in this dump.
