The Salem News will debut new weekend edition
Saturday, Oct. 5 will mark a new chapter for the Salem News as readers will experience a brand-new weekend edition.
Starting Oct. 5, the Salem News will debut an expanded weekend edition with everything you look forward to in both your Saturday and Sunday newspapers.
The weekend edition will be delivered to home delivery subscribers, stores and vending machines on Saturday mornings and will continue to be available in vending machines and stores on Sundays.
For 130 years, the Salem News has been your local leading news-gathering organization, focusing on daily events and breaking news in Columbiana County and parts of Mahoning County in our print editions and, in recent times, our e-editions, and through salemnews.net, Facebook and Twitter.
Our commitment to the local community is to continue to produce stories and provide photos on interesting people and events; to keep you abreast of breaking news; and to provide information from police, courts and local governments and school districts. Our editorial page will continue to start discussions on local and regional issues that matter to you.
The Salem News weekend edition will build on that commitment. It will include our full-color weekend comics and our weekend classified advertising listings. By combining all of your favorite features from our Saturday and Sunday editions into one day, and by reporting on the issues that matter the most to you, along with more local content from readers through letters to the editor and guest columnist submissions, we will provide an edition full of news, sports and lifestyles.
“We are very pleased to build and deliver a new, comprehensive weekend edition to our readers,” said Salem News publisher Tammie McIntosh. “This is another example of our commitment to deliver to this community like we have for 130 years. No other entity supports local businesses as we do through effective and affordable advertising initiatives. Our editorials over the past years urging readers to shop locally reflected the dedication we have to helping local businesses thrive. We will continue that support in our new weekend edition.”
Our online edition at salemnews.net will also continue to be a source of local information. News and sports events happening on Saturdays will be available through salemnews.net and our app throughout the weekend.
The weekend edition will also contain all of your favorite Sunday advertising inserts and specials a day earlier, allowing readers to better plan weekend shopping trips. Subscriptions rates will not increase.

“I am happy to talk to our readers anytime,” McIntosh said. “It’s always a pleasure to hear from community members. Our staff and independent contract carriers are excited for the enhanced weekend edition and look forward to more years of providing local news and sports in print and online.”
