There will be no newspaper Monday, Wednesday, or Friday according to the new schedule for the Sulphur Springs News Telegram. According to sources, the News Telegram will begin printing only three (3) days per week beginning Monday, August 27, 2018.
The cutbacks will create new deadlines for news and other content. Much of the content must be submitted by 7 a.m. on the day before publication. Obituaries must be submitted prior to 4 p.m. on the day before publication. Publication days will be Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
The three day publishing schedule had been rumored for some time with a start date for the new schedule on September 1 of this year.
Not only is the publication schedule changed but a rigid, uniform wording of specific segments of articles and a set number of articles by each writer has also been put in place.
