Newspapers will continue to be delivered each week
It has been brought to the attention of the River County News staff that some residents of Jersey County are under the impression that we will no longer be printing a physical copy of our paper. This is not true. The Jersey County Journal will still be delivered by mail each week.
We believe the confusion sparked from an article published last month that informed our readers of changes to our subscription rates with our other four newspapers (Calhoun News-Herald, Greene Prairie Press, Pike Press, Scott County Times). Since the Jersey County Journal is not a subscription-based newspaper and copies are automatically delivered to residents within the county, this rate increase does not apply.
The cost of an online subscription for the Jersey County Journal is $35 per year, but the physical copy will continue to be delivered to Jersey County residents, free of charge.
Again, all of the River County News newspapers will continue to be printed. Anyone who would like to subscribe to the Calhoun News-Herald, Greene Prairie Press, Pike Press, and/or the Scott County Times can give the River County News office a call at 618-498-1234, or stop by 832 South State St. in Jerseyville.
River County News Regional Editor Carissa Sitki apologized for the miscommunication stemming from the aforementioned article and reiterated that physical copies of the Jersey County Journal are not going anywhere.
“I apologize for any confusion our article regarding subscription rates may have caused,” said Sitki. “The Jersey County Journal is not going anywhere and will continue to be printed and delivered to Jersey County residents each week. Please give us a call if you have any other questions or concerns and we appreciate your support.”
The River County News staff said they will remain committed to serving their readership throughout Jersey County.
