Thanks for reading the DTH on our first day back. I can already tell you it’s going to be a great year — today we’re launching Swerve, a new section covering student life, arts and entertainment; our app is now available in the App Store and on Google Play; and we’ve just started accepting op-eds.
We’ve also had a change that will be obvious to anyone who passes a DTH box one week from today: This year, The Daily Tar Heel will not publish a physical newspaper on Tuesdays.
Like many publications, our financial situation isn’t great right now. This is only one of the ways we’re trying to make it better.
But that doesn’t mean we’re taking a night off or going home early on Monday nights. Everything you would have found in the print paper will be online on Tuesdays, along with stories we’re not able to tell in print — stories with major video, audio or interactive components. Stories we can’t wait for you to see.
Thanks to the internet, The Daily Tar Heel hasn’t been “daily” for a long time — we’re much faster than that. We work around the clock to bring you breaking news as it happens, whether it’s 2 p.m. on a Wednesday or 3 a.m. on a Saturday.
