The Wake Weekly was always my favorite newspaper, so I could read about the local school sports (all of them, not just Wake Forest).
Ever since the change in ownership, the printed edition I subscribe to has become a shell of its former self. It is tiny and only contains content of Rolesville or Wake Forest.
There was a wonderful article online about Franklin Academy which I had hoped to read in print and save it since my son was named. When I opened the Fall Sports Preview and the paper, I saw that hardly any of the online content was printed.
Why do I bother subscribing if the printed paper will not have all of the articles? I realize printing costs are high and there are not high margins in the newspaper business, but I’d rather pay more in subscription costs to get a quality full paper, especially with local school sports.
It is our only venue because the major papers don’t care about local sports. Please consider increasing your print content.
