Message to Our Readers

Dear Readers,

We are forced, after more than ten years of successive increases in the costs of newsprint, ink, gasoline, etc. to increase the price of our newspapers.

Therefore, the selling price of the daily Greek edition at news stands will increase to $1.75 and the weekend edition to $2.00.

The price of our weekly English edition will increase to $2.50.

Mail and home delivery subscription prices will also increase accordingly, and the same will apply to the subscription prices on our websites.

The new prices will go into effect the weekend of April 9-10, 2022.

Dear Friends,

For years we have been absorbing unbearable increases in costs, during the very difficult general financial situation we have all experienced, so as not to burden you. Indicatively, I mention that the most recent increase in the cost of newsprint was of the order of 12% (!) – and three more, smaller ones had preceded it in the last six months.

So, we have no choice but to adjust prices.

Otherwise we would jeopardize our ability to practice the independent journalism we have been applying for almost 107 years – that is something that neither you nor we would ever tolerate.

Nevertheless, despite great difficulties, we continue to improve the quality of our publications and our websites.

We have managed, as I believe you will agree, to reach an impressive level, and we are still improving almost every day.

The newspapers, under the leadership of a new generation of the Diamataris family, my son and my daughter, in collaboration with the veteran and new staffers we have added in New York, Athens, and Cyprus, fulfill their mission with devotion, unwaveringly serving our Community and the Hellenic Nation.

But this presupposes that we remain financially independent, that we rely for our operation on the many, not the few. To ensure this, to have a newspaper you can continue to be proud of, we have to make these first increases after more than ten years.

I am confident of your understanding and your continued support, because our Greek language daily edition Eθνικός Κήρυξ-the National Herald’s relationship relationship with our readers reaches its 107th(!) anniversary on April 2. Like a long and happy marriage, it is neither automatic nor accidental. It reflects a mutual commitment, communication, and appreciation, for which we are respectively proud and grateful.
