I mentioned last week that we would be asking the KPA Board to approve a funding mechanism for the Fall Chapter Series. And it did. And many of you have as well.
As recommended, the Board okayed a two cents per copy assessment on newspapers wanting to run the 10-week series this Fall. And as soon as the word got out Monday morning, responses came flowing in.
Monday alone, we had 14 newspapers sign up, with 105,008 total circulation and $2,100.16 committed. That’s just one-fifth of the newspapers who used the series in 2016 so we’re well on our way!
Only those newspapers committing to the funding project will be allowed to use the series in 2017.
FRIDAY UPDATE: As of this morning, 22 newspapers have signed up, representing almost 138,000 circulation and $2,748 in funding.
Here are the newspapers that have signed up and committed to the funding: Adair County Community Voice, Ashland Daily Independent, Central Kentucky News Journal, Clinton County News, Corbin Times Tribune, Dawson Springs Progress, Franklin Favorite, Georgetown News Graphic, Greenup Beacon Greenup, County News Times Kentucky Standard, Lebanon Enterprise, Lexington Herald Leader, London Sentinel Echo, Madisonville Messenger, Richmond Register, Sebree Banner, Shepherdsville Pioneer News, Springfield Sun, Sturgis News, Wayne County Outlook, Winchester Sun.
