Stories of the Year in Westside Pioneer January-February print edition
Publishing all-color again, the Westside Pioneer has just released its January-February print edition.
The print run was 11,000. Following a tradition since the paper started in 2004, the featured article is the Westside Stories of the Year, focusing on 20 events/issues that particularly impacted our coverage area in 2017.
Like the website, the printed edition is free to readers and consists entirely of content focused on Westside news. A 16-page paper is printed every other month.
The family-owned publication is starting its 15th year. We define the Westside as east of Manitou Springs, south of Garden of the Gods Road, west of I-25 and north of Cheyenne/Broadmoor.
Copies are available at more than 50 outlets in that area. Among the outlets are both King Soopers, both Safeways, the Westside Community Center, the Old Colorado City Library, the Old Colorado City ore-cart news boxes and a rack outside the Old Colorado City post office.
For our farther-off readers, we can mail you a print edition. We will send it first-class (inside an envelope) anywhere in the U.S. for $3. To set up that service, get in touch with us using either of the e-mail addresses or phone number listed in the paragraphs below.
Online, the Pioneer e-mails a weekly "blast" to let subscribers know about new articles. There is no fee for that service. To get on the list, e-mail Editor Kenyon Jordan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That is also the best e-mail for news tips or questions about stories.
Until our November-December edition, full color had not been financially feasible on all our pages. In our earlier years, we had color on four pages. A year ago, that increased to 8 and now, thanks to an opportunity from our printer, we can do color on all 16.
Obviously, this adds more life to our photos and graphics. That's a good thing for news coverage as well as advertising. So if you're a business owner looking for ways to advertise to the Westside, we're more ready than ever to help you out. The person to contact is Pioneer Assistant Publisher Therese Jordan at email@example.com.
The newspaper phone for both news and advertising is 471-6776.
