The Record Delta Expanding Online News Presence


BUCKHANNON – There’s exciting news coming to the readers of The Record Delta who enjoy surfing the web for expanded coverage of news and events from the convenience of laptops, cell devices and anywhere you can find Internet access.

“This is very exciting to open this new chapter at The Record Delta,” Publisher James Austin said. “We will be adding video, expanded editorial content and new avenues to subscribe.”

The expanded online presence will include pictures and stories that didn’t make the three times a week print edition but will offer a greater value and quality to the current online offering.

“We will be offering online only subscriptions to non-subscribers and single copy buyers to our print edition. We want our readers to have the convenience of accessing their trusted local news on the device of their choice,” Austin added.

“There are many readers who depend on news at their fingertips, and we are going to bring them that coverage,” Austin added.

Of course, the print edition will remain available to folks who want their hands on the pages of The Record Delta, and also will be able to access our online edition.

Soon you will see news video, sports video, event video, along with value added stories, pictures and a variety of in-house podcasts at www.therecorddelta.com.

“2019 is going to be a great year here at the paper,” Editor John Clise said. “We are going to be making great changes, adding great content and adapting our news model to better meet the needs of our growing online readership.”

Through the use of its website and social media outlets on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, The Record Delta will be on the frontlines of news coverage for the city, county and state.

“It’s a new time in newspapers and news coverage,” Clise said. “We are going to be on that new frontier as trends change, as technology advances and as readership needs evolve, we will be there to serve the community.”

Advertisers will also be able to benefit from this direction as The Record Delta is selling online advertising on its social media sites and website. Advertisers will also be able to advertise with video ads online.

“Our ad reps are eager and excited to speak with our current clients and to new clients about these fantastic opportunities at The Record Delta,” Austin said.

Advertisers are encouraged to contact their sales person about these exciting opportunities to reach new customers.
