Our print subscribers have been good to us this year, supporting local journalism and sustaining our business in what continues to be a time of upheaval in the traditional news industry.
So we have a gift for all of you: Free subscriptions to our digital products.
If you are a print subscriber, you should have received a postcard telling you how to sign up. We spread the news gradually over the last six weeks, so that we would be able to assist anyone who was having trouble.
We have three digital products that are now freely available to our print subscribers:
• The original and most familiar is our website, www.columbian.com. Southwest Washington’s best and most comprehensive news site is updated all day long with the latest stories both locally and from the wire services. In addition to the content that appears in the print paper, we offer video, audio, interactive graphics, online polls and other exclusive features. Our site has what we call a responsive design, meaning it can tell if you are looking at it from a device with a big screen or small screen, and will size itself accordingly so that you can easily read it.
• The website’s cousin is our mobile app. Smartphone and tablet users can download it from their digital app store; we have versions for both Android and Apple. You can register for both of these at www.columbian.com/digital.
