Gainesville Daily Register

A letter to our readers


Gainesville — The staff of the Gainesville Daily Register strives every day to deliver the latest, most reliable information about our community. Technology gives us many new opportunities to do that, and we are constantly evaluating our products to be as effective as possible in reaching our readers and serving our advertisers.

With that in mind, the Register is changing its print publication schedule.

As of next week, the Register will be available on newsstands and delivered to subscribers Tuesday through Saturday.  Beginning May 5, 2013, we will no longer publish a Monday edition.

The Register, of course, will continue to provide top-quality news and advertising on our website,, and via our other digital products. Of course, we will continue to fill the print edition with stories and photos that give you up-to-date information, context and analysis about important issues; details about local happenings; and news about your neighbors.

Our Weekend edition, delivered in Saturday’s mail, will also contain new features and content about our community.

These changes reflect the world around us. Like newspapers everywhere, we at the Register must attune our work to the realities of our business and the demands of our readers and advertisers.

Gone are the days when we printed the news once a day on paper, then put it in the hands of carriers who relayed it across the community.

Today we're on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to deliver information through a variety of methods.

The challenges of today's media landscape are onerous - and exciting.

Never before have we reached so many people - through our newspaper, digital products and specialty publications.

In the coming days, we'll be in touch with our advertising customers directly affected by these developments.

And, for all of our readers, we will continue to show you why we're Cooke County’s top source for local news and information.

Thank you for your continued support.

Jim Perry,
