Quote of the week

  "There is a demand for a daily newspaper in New Orleans that will not be met by any New Orleans publications, beginning October 1, 2012. This would end a 175-year tradition of delivering a daily newspaper to New Orleanians and make New Orleans the largest city in the U.S. without a daily printed paper. At The Advocate, we think New Orleans and its citizens deserve a quality newspaper printed each and every day, and we intend to provide one." David Manship, publisher of the Baton Rouge newspaper The Advocate. The paper began making aggressive moves into the New Orleans market last week, announcing an introductory $14.95-per-month subscription rate (undercutting The Times-Picayune's $16.95 rate for its new three-day-a-week paper) and hiring T-P veterans Sara Pagones and Kari Dequine Harden for its new New Orleans bureau.
