Comox Valley Record publication days changing

The Comox Valley Record is changing publication days, switching from Wednesdays and Fridays to Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning March 19.

The Comox Valley Record is changing publication days, switching from Wednesdays and Fridays to Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning March 19.

“The change to Tuesday/Thursday afternoon distribution of the Record has been under consideration for some time now,” says publisher Joanna Ross.

“This change will allow our readers a more timely delivery of local news; in addition, our readers and advertisers will both benefit from having advertisements and flyers delivered one day earlier.”

Last month, the Record was nominated as one of three general excellence finalists (within a pre-determined circulation category) for this year’s Ma Murray B.C. community newspaper awards.

The paper finished first in general excellence at the 2010 Ma Murray award presentations and fourth last year, when we finished second in two ad design categories.

The Record also placed first last year in the Canadian Community Newspapers Association’s Great Ideas Awards.

The very first issue of the then-titled Courtenay Comox Valley Record hit newsstands March 26, 1986.

The Record celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2011 and is owned by David Black’s Black Press, the largest independently owned newspaper company in Canada, with more than 150 titles in print and online. Victoria-based Black Press has operations in B.C., Alberta, Washington, Hawaii, California and Ohio.
