Community weekly newspapers, especially those in the more rural areas of Saskatchewan, are NOT suffering from the same decline in readership as the big city dailies! The Unity-Wilkie Press-Herald is alive and well, with its extensive local coverage and loyal readers.
Research by the Saskatchewan Weekly Newspapers Association shows “readership is very high; 83% on average in Saskatchewan.”
With distribution of 2000, the reach of the Press-Herald extends well beyond that with multiple member households, the public library, the waiting rooms at both the Unity and Wilkie health centres and the schools all receiving copies.
