In order to let readers know when we’ve updated our news content, staff at Kootenai Valley Times now offers three free email subscription services, and we’ve added a sign up block in the right column, “Free email updates,” with choices for news alerts, updates on items we post on our social feeds and a weekly newsletter.
News alerts are sparingly used to provide immediate notice of important breaking news, to include weather watches or warnings, school closures and news of emergencies.
The newsletter will provide readers with links to the week’s top stories as well as news of what’s new at KVT, such as changes to the website, new staff and the like.
The social link is to provide those who want the news we post to our Facebook and Twitter pages free of filtering by those platforms, used to give teases of newly published articles with links to the full story.
As with anything new, we’re not quite certain yet everything in the system will work, but we hope to identify and correct any glitches as they occur. We hope these services will prove beneficial to our readers and welcome any questions or comments. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (208) 295-1016.
