Newspaper 75 cents beginning in July
Starting next week, the single copy price of The South Reporter will increase to 75 cents.
This will apply to those purchasing the newspaper from one of 60 vendors across Marshall or Benton counties or from racks in the Holly Springs area.
The single copy increase is the first in approximately 20 years.
“Our costs of producing your community newspaper and delivering it have increased regularly during that time period,” publisher Barry Burleson said.
Also next week, the yearly subscription rate will increase to $25 for residents of Marshall and Benton counties and $30 for those living out-of-county.
A special senior citizen rate, for those ages 65 and over, will still be available in Marshall and Benton counties for $23 per year.
The subscription increase is the first in five years.
Burleson expressed thanks to everyone for supporting members of The South Reporter staff in their efforts to produce a great newspaper for a great community.
“We strive each week to publish a strong product, filled with local content,” Burleson said. “And we appreciate everyone who contributes to that success – from advertisers to readers to those who submit news items and other information. We’re humbled by the reception we receive each week when the newspaper hits the streets.”
The South Reporter, with a rich tradition of excellence, is in its 148th year. It began in 1865.
The newspaper last year also launched its E-edition at www.southreporter.com. Starting July 1, the cost for access to the online edition will also increase to $25 per year.
