Local businesses buy ad to show appreciation for coverage of COVID-19, making it all worthwhile

Sunday’s Lexington Herald-Leader received a full page ad. From local businesses just wanting to say “Thank You” to the Lexington Herald-Leader for all of its coverage during the COVID-19 pandemic.

General manager/editor Peter Baniak said he thought the ad was “pretty cool.” It’s great to see local businesses acknowledge the role of a newspaper for its news coverage and that makes all the efforts worthwhile.

Here’s a story that appeared this week in Journalism Institute by the National Press Club with the full-page ad below:
