Signal to change publication day in February
Starting the first week in February, the Baldwin City Signal will move its publication date from Wednesdays to Thursdays.
"We're excited to be making this switch," said Jeff Myrick, Signal editor/publisher. "It gives us the chance for another day's worth of news and sports each week. It will also serve our advertisers better."
The switch will occur with the Feb. 5 issue. Until Jan. 30, all deadlines will remain the same -- advertising space reservations by noon on Fridays, classified ad copy by 5 p.m. on Mondays and news copy by noon on Mondays.
Starting Jan. 30, those deadlines will move forward a work day. Advertising space reservations will be necessary by noon on Mondays, classified ad copy by 5 p.m. Tuesdays and news copy by noon on Tuesdays.
The Signal will celebrate its fifth anniversary the first week in March. From its inception on March 3, 1999, the Signal has been a Wednesday paper.
"When we first launched the Signal five years ago, the Wednesday publication date was the logical choice," said Myrick. "Now it makes more sense to move to Thursdays."
