The National Herald is making a new beginning in two weeks, as we announced in our Greek-language weekend edition.
Thus, as pointed out by our readers and friends – I thank them for their words of praise that increase even more our sense of responsibility towards you – the Greek-American community and its foremost Greek and English language newspapers are taking the lead among Greek newspapers globally in facing the new conditions and challenges of our digital time.
In summary, the main points of the Greek statement are as follows:
The Greek edition of the National Herald will continue to produce and publish six (6) newspaper editions a week, as it has done for many decades.
The difference will be that it will not print all six.
It will print three editions: namely, Monday, Wednesday, and the weekend. However, all of our daily editions – all six – will be posted on our website in PDF format.
Readers will therefore be able to read the paper electronically, in digital format, on the days when it is not printed.
That way readers will have full access to the news, the ads, the classifieds, and the notices for funerals and memorials – everything – as is the case with the print editions.
In addition, we will offer our print subscribers free access to our website. However, they will need to call us at (718) 784-5255 so that we can provide them with passwords and guidance, should they need it, in navigating the website.
Of course, we will continue to offer ‘Periodiko’, our fantastic weekly magazine, free of charge, with our rich weekend edition.
Our English publication, The National Herald – it is being strengthened even further with new partnerships and exciting new initiatives – will continue as in the past, with one small change: it will be printed and distributed on Fridays, instead of Thursdays.
Our websites are also being modernized and improved even further.
So here we have it: a new era – but the same honest, accurate, and objective information at your fingertips.
