It's appropriate that as The Alpena News staff concludes its celebration of National Newspaper Week, today we unveiled a new mobile app for iPhone users to stay connected with us.
The News has gone through major changes since its inception in 1899, yet one thing hasn't changed in over that century-plus history, and this is our commitment to being the number one source of information for our readers in Northeast Michigan.
With the introduction today of The Alpena News iPhone app, it allows readers on the go that much easier access to the news 24-7.
It used to be newspapers were only printed on newsprint. Today, that remains the most popular form of delivery, but other aspects of the newspaper also can be read online at our website - thealpenanews.com - or now on iPhones.
Newspapers have weathered the winds of change well over the decades because not only have they embraced new technology and changes, but more importantly, they have developed strong relationships based on trust and wrapped in truth with their readers. Indeed, readers and residents proudly embrace their hometown newspaper as a true reflection of their community. Nowhere is that more true than here in Northeast Michigan.
We're glad to be a part of your world each morning over that first cup of coffee. Whether at home on paper or now, in your hand on the run, we're honored to be your source of local news.
