A note from the publisher about newsstand, subscription increases

Dear News-Review reader,

Our mission has long been to provide you with the very best community journalism.

When our sister newspaper, The Suffolk Times, was first printed in 1857, its inaugural editorial said it aimed to be, “above all else, a good newspaper.” 

If we wrote that same editorial today, we’d describe ourselves as not merely a weekly newspaper but rather a multimedia company producing content on a daily basis. The way we tell stories has changed dramatically in recent years, from words and photos on a page to videos and podcasts that bring those stories to life on our websites and through social media. This month, we’re launching a series of events that will give our readers the opportunity to engage with stakeholders on the issues that are most important to them.

Our talented staff consistently strives to produce top-quality work that we believe makes a positive difference in your life and in our shared community.

It is our belief that at Times Review Media Group we produce journalism worth paying for — and in order to adapt to new technology and rising production costs, we will be making several changes in the months ahead to the ways we charge for content.

Beginning with this issue, our newsstand price has been increased from $1.50 to $2. In the coming months, our home-delivery subscription rate will also increase, to $85 per year.

To minimize the impact of these changes on our readership, for a limited time, we are offering existing print and new subscribers the opportunity to renew for one year at the current lower rates.

If you’d like to take advantage of this extension offer, please be sure to contact circulation manager Keysha Terry at 631-354-8014 or [email protected] before March 29. You can also mail your renewal request to Times Review Media Group, P.O. Box 1500, Mattituck, NY 11952.

We appreciate your continued loyalty to our newspaper. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly at 631-354-8031 or [email protected].
