Athens Weekly News Becomes Free Tabloid

may 24, 2004  07:28 pm
Last August, the former executive editor of Flagpole Magazine, an AAN member paper in Athens, Ga., started a subscription-based newsletter. That fast-growing newsletter, the Athens Weekly News, just made its re-debut as a free weekly tabloid. Editor and publisher Brad Aaron announced the change in his op-ed column May 21. The Weekly News will continue to concentrate on local news but will also offer more in-depth news stories, a bigger opinion section, an expanded events calendar with music listings, arts coverage and a classified ads section.
