The Journal to debut new Sunday Journal Edition on Sept. 7

NEW ULM — September 7 marks a new chapter for The Journal, as readers will experience our Sunday Journal Edition, featuring the best of New Ulm and the area, every Saturday.

Since its first edition more than 150 years ago, The Journal has been telling the story of New Ulm and the surrounding region, covering the news, society happenings and sporting events that matter most to its readers in print and, in recent years, also online at nujournal.com

This commitment to the local community also includes good stories on people you know who are doing interesting things, as well as principled leadership on local and regional issues on our editorial page.

The Sunday Journal will build on that commitment. By combining all of your favorite features from Saturday’s and Sunday’s 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 content.

“We are very excited to showcase The Sunday Journal, as it will be filled with content that is unique and important to our readers,” said Greg Orear, publisher of The Journal. “Nobody covers the news, sports and community happenings in this region better and more thoroughly than The Journal, and no other entity supports local businesses as we do through effective advertising initiatives. We are excited to take this step in our history.”

The Sunday Journal Edition will have an expanded Lifestyle Section. From church happenings to community arts events, please help us inform our readers about the many wonderful things taking place in and around New Ulm. If you would like your event included, please call editor Kevin Sweeney at 507-359-2911 or email him at ksweeney@nujournal.com.

Everyone loves the local sports teams, and The Sunday Journal Edition will have no shortage of coverage. From game stories and pictures in an expanded weekend sports section to the latest on area high schools and Martin Luther College, there will be an abundance for sports fans to consume.

The Sunday Journal Edition also will contain all of your favorite Sunday advertising inserts and specials a day earlier, which will allow readers to better plan their weekend shopping trips.

News that happens on Saturdays will be available on our website, nujournal.com. Readers looking to stay up on the latest daily headlines and breaking news also can sign up for our online newsletters at our website. All rates for The Journal will remain the same.

Orear said he is interested in reader feedback – what you like and additional features you may want to see in the future. He can be reached via email at gorear@nujournal.com.
