Changes move Herald into future

To our readers:

Today's Herald looks a little different, but it's a change that was necessary.

Page dimensions have changed to what’s known as a broadsheet format. Converting to the traditional broadsheet layout won’t change the news and feature content, but it is a necessary accommodation for the production process, which now takes place in Owensboro, Kentucky.

We'll also be adjusting the print publication schedule, effective immediately, to a five-day — Tuesday through Saturday — print edition. The Herald will no longer publish a newspaper on Mondays, starting this week. Subscribers will not receive a paper this Monday.

Holiday Foods inserts that normally publish on Mondays will now publish on Tuesdays.

Local newsroom and advertising staff remain in Jasper and are committed to sustaining The Herald’s rich history of community news coverage in Dubois and neighboring counties.

Dubois County native Olivia Ingle has assumed the role of managing editor. She grew up in Holland and graduated from Southridge High School in 2008 before studying journalism at Butler University in Indianapolis. After interning at The Herald in summer 2010, she knew she someday wanted to return to tell the stories of the unique community that is Dubois County. She got her chance nearly four years ago when she became news editor at the paper. She now lives in Jasper.

The necessary changes will allow The Herald to continue to tell the stories of the community, its rich history and its promising future.

The office at 216 E. Fourth St. in Jasper is still closed to the public due to COVID-19; however, you can still reach us by phone at 812-482-2424, on our social media pages and on our website,, where we will continue to bring breaking news and updates to subscribers as they happen.
