New weekend edition set for Aug. 31

A new chapter for the OBSERVER and its readers begins at the end of this month.

Starting Aug. 31, the OBSERVER will debut an enhanced weekend edition with everything you look forward to in both your Saturday and Sunday newspapers. The expanded edition will be delivered to home-delivery subscribers, stores and vending machines on Saturday morning and continue to be available in vending machines and stores on Sundays.

For 137 years, the OBSERVER has been the region’s leading news-gathering organization, focusing on the daily events and news that happens in the northern Chautauqua County and Gowanda areas in both our print edition, e-edition, observertoday.com, Facebook and Twitter pages. Our efforts continue through this new edition that will feature added news coverage, a weekly calendar of events, local high school and club sports coverage as well as the achievements and milestones of individuals, students and couples in our Lifestyles section.

Regular Sunday features, such as the expanded Opinions page, Star Watch and the color comics and inserts — one day earlier — also will be part of this new edition.

“Since 1882, the OBSERVER has been more than just a newspaper,” said Publisher John D’Agostino. “We are a community partner that believes in helping this area succeed. We participate in events, take a role in area organizations and are committed to being a voice for all in this region. This new weekend edition will continue to build on those traditions.”

Our online edition, www.observertoday.com, also will continue to be a source of updated and timely information. News and sports events that happen Saturdays will be available at our web site and app.

Readers looking to stay up on the latest daily headlines and breaking news also can sign up for our online newsletters at our website. All rates for the OBSERVER will remain the same.

Those with questions or comments are invited to reach out to D’Agostino at jdagostino@observertoday.com or by phone at 366-3000, ext. 401.

“Our staff is proud of our product and service,” he said. “Your feedback is always important.”
