Beginning Tuesday, The Crescent-News will be implementing a brand new business model to provide local news to our readers in a more timely manner.
As of Tuesday, our newspaper will be available at newsstands in our coverage area by 8 a.m. Home delivery customers in Defiance city (43512 zip code) can expect delivery by 7 a.m., while customers outside the 43512 zip code will receive their Crescent-News the same day along with their daily mail delivery.
Our e-edition will be available by 8 a.m. each publication day for online subscribers and our print customers who have registered for online access.
Our publication schedule will be Tuesday through Saturday, with the Saturday edition being a special weekend edition with all of the features and advertising supplements of our current Sunday edition. The Saturday edition will be delivered by 8 a.m. in the Defiance 43512 zip code and the same day by your mail carrier in outlying areas.
Customers who currently have a P.O. Box as their mailing address are asked to call The Crescent-News circulation office at 419-784-5441 ext. 300700 and confirm their home address matches what we have on file. This is necessary to avoid any mix-ups in delivery.
Any customer in the Defiance 43512 zip code who has not received their newspaper by 7 a.m. weekdays or 8 a.m. Saturday should contact The Crescent-News circulation department between 6 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays and 6-11a.m. Saturday at 419-784-5441 ext. 300700. The C-N circulation department will offer re-delivery of missed papers until 9:30 a.m. Tuesday-Friday and until 10:30 a.m. Saturday.
