Changes coming Monday for News-Sentinel

64-page commemorative edition in Saturday afternoon's edition.

Beginning on Monday, Oct. 9, The News-Sentinel plans some significant changes but will still deliver the same quality journalism it has in the past, and there will be a dedicated focus to finding different ways to report the news and tell the stories of the residents of Allen County.While daily delivery of the afternoon newspaper will be discontinued, News-Sentinel readers will still be able to receive the same conservative views in editorials and commentaries as well as storytelling and enterprise investigative journalism, but with a renewed focus on the online product. In addition to this online focus, print subscribers will still be able to receive a more condensed version of The News-Sentinel Monday through Saturday within the pages of The Journal Gazette.

The News-Sentinel has been devoted to delivering the stories its readers expect on our website for quite some time. We have offered longform story presentations such as our celebration of IPFW’s 50th anniversary and the University of Saint Francis turning 125 and our look back at the 1913 Flood of the Century. Those projects were accomplished only because we had the right mix of talented and experienced journalists and visual and digital risk-takers within the newsroom. We plan to offer even more every day as the news-sentinel.com team moves forward.

There will be a renewed effort in telling the stories of Allen County residents. We will attempt to cover the stories that matter to our community. We will monitor web traffic daily to see what stories matter to those who read The News-Sentinel and make attempts to reach out to a new audience as well.

We are planning to continue to grow our multimedia library through audio podcasts, staff-produced videos, video diaries and photo galleries.

We will also use the experience we have in our newsroom to deliver monthly investigative projects using multiple forms of media.

Watch for the new News-Sentinel every day online and in the Monday-through-Saturday Journal Gazette starting Monday, Oct. 9.

Also, be sure to get your copy of the final afternoon daily edition of The News-Sentinel on Saturday, which will include a 64-page special section commemorating the history of The News-Sentinel. The special section will include stories about some of the people and events that made their mark on The News-Sentinel through the years. It will also include historic front pages and much more.
