BELLEVILLE – Starting Nov. 2, the Belleville News-Democrat will shift to a digital-only replica edition on Saturdays and launch a new weekend package with expanded print editions on Fridays and Sundays. The paper made the announcement July 30.
More and more customers are engaging with our local journalism online, according to a BND report. The digital transformation is not unique to the BND; it is a widespread trend in journalism and in many other industries. The eEdition is organized and designed just like the print edition.
On Fridays, the BND will include additional puzzles as well as a new themed section called "Uplift," your source of good news for the weekend. On Sundays, in addition to the usual comics and puzzles lineup, the BND will add puzzles and comics from the Saturday paper.
