Monday is first holiday Herald won’t publish

Published 7:43 am Thursday, May 25, 2017

We’re closing in on a month since the Herald switched to mail delivery, and we’re approaching another first.

Memorial Day, May 29, will be the first holiday that subscribers will not receive a print edition of the Herald.

On May 1, the Austin Daily Herald switched to a morning publication after years of being an evening paper. The Herald also moved it’s weekend edition from Sunday to Saturday.

The changes came as deliveries are now almost entirely made through the U.S. Postal Service. The newspaper has been placed in mailboxes with regular mail delivery and also hits business racks by 8 a.m.

But with that change, the Herald will no longer print holiday editions on the following holidays this year and in future years:

•New Year’s Day

•Martin Luther King Jr. Day

•Washington’s Birthday

•Memorial Day (May 29)

•Independence Day (July 4)

•Labor Day (Sept. 4)

•Columbus Day (Oct.9)

•Veterans Day (Nov. 10 )

•Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 23)

•Christmas Day (Dec. 25).

The Herald will still publish news online at those days.

Mark you calendars for the upcoming dates to avoid any confusion.
