Boston Herald for Sale, Price Is Right for Globe

October 28, 2018

When the costly local tabloid arrived at the Global Worldwide Headquarters this morning, the front page of Sunday Sports blared out this:

STAY ON SCHEDULE

Silverman: Red Sox stick to plan,

save Sale for Game 5

 

Said Michael Silverman piece ran on page 3.

 

 

Except . . . this Peter Abraham piece is more like it.

 

 

(To be sure graf goes here)

To be sure, the Herald got it all sorted out eventually, as the paper’s website and E-Edition indicate. But that sure doesn’t help the lowly home subscriber, now does it?

Boston Herald Subscription: Biggest. Waste. Ever. (III)

October 31, 2013

Well the halfreading staff just got another call from the Heraldniks (rhymes with nudniks) who told us yes, we would not get the Boston Herald delivered to our home today. We should get it tomorrow, though.herald-zap

But good news! As subscribers we have free access to the fusty local tabloid’s E-Edition.

Hey, tell us something we don’t know. As the splendid readers of Two-Daily Town are likely aware, we often find the digital version of the Herald useful.

But – news flash! – we take the paper because we prefer reading it in print form.

Apparently we’ll be doubling our pleasure tomorrow.


WRKO = We Really Knock Others

January 5, 2013

Big breakthrough for the hardreading staff: We’ve finally gotten access to the Boston Herald’s e-Edition, which is only right since we’re one of the 17 home subscribers to the feisty local tabloid.

Anyway, that allows us to bring you this WRKO ad from Friday’s Herald, which combines a whack at the demise of News Talk 96.9 with a promo for Herald columnist Howie Carr:

680 WRKO – Boston’s ONLY Talk Station!

Does it get any more depressing than that?
