In addition to providing people with compelling stories and photography, newspapers supply the raw materials to piece together ransom notes demanding more newspaper subscriptions. Demand to be informed with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a 26-week Thursday and Sunday subscription to The Republican (up to a $63.70 value).
Named a 2011 Newspaper of the Year by the New England Newspaper and Press Association and boasting a team of seasoned journalists at the helm, The Republican has been deftly publishing the yarns of Western Massachusetts news and goings on since 1824. Tailoring content to its readership instead of publishing updates on the Dutch East India Trading Company, Thursday and Sunday editions of the paper detail local milestones for high-school athletics, new business openings, entertainment, and town government decisions. Subscribers can also access The Republican's website, MassLive.com, where they can share opinions about their favorite articles with the 341,000-strong army of readers who trust the paper to metaphorically smudge their every Sunday morning with information-rich newsprint.
Though The Republican sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Founded in the early annals of our nation’s history back in 1824, the Republican has established itself as a media institution in Western Massachusetts, printing trusted regional news for nearly two centuries. Generations past its early days of advertisements for knee breeches and op-eds ridiculing John Quincy Adams’s horsemanship skills, the paper today claims a daily readership of more than 200,000 people and numerous visitors to MassLive.com. Throughout the journal’s Sunday and weekday pages, readers find stories with which they can instantly connect and identify, from in-depth coverage of local little-league games to reporting on regional business and city and town governments.
