It?s official! Coffs Coast Advocate on a Monday
YOU asked for it, and we're going to deliver it!
With those words the Coffs Coast Advocate's general manager James Parker yesterday announced that the city's leading daily newspaper will be extending its coverage of the area by launching a Monday edition on March 14.
Mr Parker chose the regular breakfast meeting of the Coffs Harbour Chamber of Commerce to outline his vision for the Coffs Coast Advocate being published six days a week.
"The Monday edition will cement the Advocate's role as the Coffs Coast's 'news leader', allowing us to cover all the weekend news, sport and events while they're still fresh," Mr Parker said.
"Sport will obviously be a highlight of Monday's Advocate, with a minimum of 12 pages during the winter months," Mr Parker said.
"This will be a combination of local, national and international sport, including all the NRL, Super 12, soccer and AFL results."
Coffs Harbour's mayor was quick to congratulate the Coffs Coast Advocate on its initiative.
"It is a positive decision in the growth of the Coffs Harbour region," Cr Keith Rhoades said.
The first Monday edition of the Coffs Coast Advocate will hit the newsstands on March 14, to coincide with the commencement of the 2005 NRL season.
Subscribers to the Coffs Coast Advocate will receive four free editions of Monday's paper until their subcription requires renewal.
The decision to publish a Monday edition means four additional positions have been created in the editorial department of the city's oldest newspaper.
