Responding to a need for local news coverage in Pike County, Ky., the Appalachian News-Express will go daily beginning April 18. The paper will be published Tuesday through Sunday.
?It was a mutual decision made because Pike County has a desire for more local information and the News-Express is the only news source that provides local information. We want to be able to deliver more local news more often,? Jeff Vanderbeck, general manager of the News-Express, said
The newspaper’s publisher, Marty Backus, said that a recent survey indicated the most common complaint about the News-Express was that it was not daily.
