WORTHINGTON - Employees at the Daily Globe are in the midst of preparations for the newspaper’s conversion to a twice-weekly printed publication.

 

Following the Wednesday, May 31, edition, the next print publication date will be Saturday, June 3. The newspaper, which will then become known as The Globe, will publish print editions each Wednesday and Saturday moving forward.

 

Staff at the Globe are working to produce editions dominated by local news and sports coverage, as well as features of regional interest. Employees of the newspaper will continue working out of the current Worthington office.

All subscribers to The Globe will also be able to access e-editions of the newspaper at no extra charge. As a new feature, subscribers will see content from USA Today seven days a week via the e-edition. Subscribers who are unfamiliar with the e-edition or needing additional assistance are encouraged to contact the Globe at 376-9711.

 

Obituaries will continue to be published in print editions of The Globe and will also be updated daily on the newspaper’s website, dglobe.com, which will serve as a 24-hour-per-day, seven-days-per week source of fresh information for readers. Classifieds will continue to be published in the print editions as well as updated daily on the web.

 

With the transition to a twice-weekly print publication, there will be a new publish day for some of our regular weekly features. Among those changes are the Out & About page moving to Wednesday editions, and the Religion page and Scott Rall outdoors column to Saturday.

 

Grocery tabs will be included with the Wednesday print editions of The Globe. That will also be the day of publication for The Drill, our new area athlete feature, in both print and online video.

There will be delivery changes to the print edition beginning with the June 3 issue. We will continue carrier delivery in Worthington and Windom. All remaining outlying communities will receive their paper via same-day mail.

 

First and foremost, The Globe will continue to strive to be the area’s go-to-source for local and area information, both print and online. Feedback, story ideas and suggestions of all types are encouraged.
