Former Neosho Daily News publisher: Change to two days was necessary to survive
In a letter to the editor in the Sunday edition, former Daily News Publisher Randy Cope said the move was necessary in order for the newspaper to "thrive into the future."
I am still in the newspaper business and I am a big advocate for this change. With the access to social media and the newspapers' own website, breaking news, sports, and obituaries can easily still be found each and every day.
I encourage the Daily News staff to use those digital avenues to tell us what happened and when it happened, but then use the twice a week print product to give us more- tell us how it happened and why.
I was once told that every strong community needs strong banks and a strong newspaper. I hope this move ensures that we will continue to have a strong local newspaper in our community for years to come.
