The latter quarter of 2018 has been a period of great change for the Great Lakes Advocate
In late October the GLA introduced a local news subscription package for online readers, while earlier this month the newspaper relocated to a new site after more than 50 years in Helen Street, Forster.
Visitors to www.greatlakesadvocate.com.au can subscribe for full website access to the latest news from the Great Lakes and beyond for $2 a week.
The new subscription offer includes around-the-clock digital access to all of the local news, sport and opinion published by the Great Lakes Advocate, as well as essential community information and the latest national news and sport, plus lifestyle, health and travel advice.
Subscribers also get access to digital replicas of each week’s print edition of the Great Lakes Advocate, so they can read every page of the newspaper on their tablet or desktop.
There’s also the option to receive regular news updates, including breaking-news alerts, by email.
Now, www.greatlakesadvocate.com.au readers who want to subscribe can opt to pay monthly and get the first 30 days of access for free.
Or they can pay for an annual subscription, receive 20 per cent off plus the first month of access for free.
In a message to the Great Lakes region audiences and advertisers, editor Toni Bell said the introduction of a local news subscription would allow audiences to choose the way they wanted to support the Great Lakes Advocate to continue providing its valued journalism and community information.
“As our audience increasingly reads our local journalism online via their smartphones and tablets, we need to make sure we can continue to deliver the coverage our community expects and deserves,” Toni said.
“By subscribing for full online access, you will be supporting the Great Lakes Advocate to continue its mission to deliver the local journalism that keeps our community informed, entertained and connected.”
Some content at www.greatlakesadvocate.com.au has remained open to website visitors including classified advertisements, such funeral notices, and recommended articles featuring local businesses.
