Southern Torch announces expansion, move to Friday publication

DEKALB COUNTY, Ala.—The Southern Torch announced yesterday that their newspaper would be moving from a Thursday publication to a Friday publication starting this week. Southern Torch Publisher Joseph Morgan said the decision to move from Thursdays to Fridays was made to accommodate an increase in the size of the publication and improve printing logistics.

“The Southern Torch newspaper will still be bringing you all of the same news, reports and coverage of exciting community events and other topics and local coverage that we know is important to you,” Morgan said. “The expansion of our publication will allow us to bring you all of that and more. The only difference is we’ll be doing so on Fridays instead of Thursdays.”

Morgan said one of the additions to the Southern Torch is an expanded sports section and the introduction of “Southern Torch Gameday,” the comprehensive coverage each week of DeKalb County high school football including a special section that will appear in the Southern Torch each Friday.

Southern Torch Sports Editor Marla Jones said the newspaper’s expansion and move to Friday was a great opportunity to increase and improve current sports coverage.

“It’s an exciting time to be a part of Southern Torch,” Jones said. “In addition to our weekly coverage from the games with live updates and scores, this expansion makes it possible for our newspaper to add Southern Torch Gameday to our sports section that will include a full review of each game from the previous week and a preview of what to watch for and expect in this week’s action in DeKalb County football.”

Southern Torch will be making the transition to a Friday publication beginning this week.
