This week, we are announcing a change in our distribution schedules. Beginning Oct. 1, 2019, The McPherson Sentinel will transition from printing five days a week to two days a week.

Subscribers will receive their paper on Wednesdays and Sundays. Subscribers will still have unlimited access to mcphersonsentinel.com, where we’ll continue to publish updates every day.

This was a difficult decision to make, but we’re confident this change will allow us to continue to provide the coverage that matters to you most. As news breaks, readers will still find it first on mcphersonsentinel.com. Our journalists will continue to engage with our audience on Facebook, with daily updates and top stories. And our app will still give readers access to our rich e-editions.

The McPherson Sentinel has been through many transformations since its establishment in 1887. Through them all, we’ve remained committed to keeping our readers informed with accurate, enterprising community journalism.

That tradition continues today.

We celebrated with you when a mural was unveiled in 2010 to commemorate the “tallest basketball team in the world,” the Refiners. Members of the team played in the first-ever USA Olympics basketball team in 1936 and defeated Canada to come home with the gold.

We’ll continue to cheer alongside you at Bullpups games. In October, we wouldn’t miss the Burnin’ Down Main Cook-Off, with the delicious smells of chili and soup wafting through the air.

The decision to change our print distribution is part of a much broader digital transformation, impacting media companies including newspapers across the country. We know many of you are already accessing our digital platforms, as we’ve seen double digital growth on social media, so we know you’re seeing our stories when you visit Facebook.

Please note, that with this change to print frequency, subscription rates and expiration dates will remain the same. Subscribers with questions, or those seeking cancellations or refunds, can call 800-827-6363 or email circulation@mcphersonsentinel.com.

Thank you for your continued loyalty, and support of our brand of journalism – reliable, accurate and community-focused news.
