Press-Herald

Press-Herald flag

Community weekly newspapers, especially those in the more rural areas of Saskatchewan, are NOT suffering from the same decline in readership as the big city dailies! The Unity-Wilkie Press-Herald is alive and well, with its extensive local coverage and loyal readers.

Research by the Saskatchewan Weekly Newspapers Association shows “readership is very high; 83% on average in Saskatchewan.”

With distribution of close to 2,000, the reach of the Press-Herald extends well beyond that with multiple member households, the public library, the waiting rooms at both the Unity and Wilkie health centres and the schools all receiving copies.

    I played baseball in Unity in 1976-78 and I’m looking for articles from games and pictures from those years. If you can help me I’d appreciate it.

    Thanks

      HI Rodney. We do keep a running list of information from the archives people are looking for and I will add this. No promises as to when as these searches are something we can only do on “slow” days at the office and there are a couple of requests ahead of you. Alternatively, people are welcome to call Helena at 228-8780 to make an appointment to come down to the office and search through the books of the back issues themselves.
