We just got back from making a offer on a house in GV and my wife and I both thought that the Greenville News was a very small paper for the size of the area that it covers. Is there a larger paper in the state that people in GV read or do people just get there news online. We are very happy to be moving from COAL HELL WV so I am not complaning just wondering.

I looked in to getting the paper for delivery and found it to be very expensive, especially for the size. I think people are just not reading the paper like they use to. I would think it's mostly the older crowd, like my neighbor, who still read it. In SOFLA they keep raising the prices of The Miami Herald to a point I stopped getting delivery, as many did. Less readers, less advertisers, less income - a vicious cycle. Hate reading papers on line, on the darned thing enough as it is. Like having a newspaper in hand, cup of coffee and sitting back and reading, not being on the computer.

I know they have at least the Sunday paper for a $1 a week but I still haven't subscribed

OP, you spelled the "Greenville Snooze" wrong.

A lot of Greenvillians read the Post and Courier (Charleston) or The State (Columbia) to add a different perspective to the Greenville News.
We also have The Greenville Journal, which is much more journalistic (ha) in nature, and usually a great read.

I only subscribe to the Sunday Greenville News. Typically I pull the paper out of the bag, yank out the circulars and coupons, and the rest of the paper just sits there until I feel like throwing it away. I mean, I've already heard or read 90% of those stories by then anyway.

I'd be amazed if the Greenville News hasn't seen tremendous losses since going to a subscription based website.

Companies and industries that truly believe "business is bad, so we have to charge more" deserve to fail. Airlines, print media, etc.

To answer your question, the Greenville News is the major daily newspaper in Greenville (there is not a larger one serving the Greenville area). There is also the Spartanburg Herald-Journal and Anderson Independent-Mail which are also major daily newspapers but serving smaller communities.

Yea, those are instate alternatives, but still about on par with The Greenville News, IMO. If you want a different perspective, they might have it, but they're not going to offer the BIG paper like the OP is asking about.

AMEN! Daily printed newspapers are a thing of the past anyway, as everyone should know by now. It has taken some companies longer to realize this, but they are slowly being squeezed into submission by the latest trends in interactive media technology. Some of the best sources for news these days are social media sites on the Internet. Twitter is hard to beat for breaking news. For example, follow @TotalTrafficGSP for updated traffic incident reports in the metro area. Most news organizations, businesses, government entities/politicians, artists, churches, event organizers, etc., post valuable info on twitter.

Too bad- I love reading the newspaper and doing the puzzles. I can get my news on-line, for free, no less. When the Greenville News started charging for their website, I crossed them off my list. I guess I could down-load and print off puzzles, but it's more fine trying to decipher a Crytoquote with a lingerie ad distracting you. Ah- 'progress'!
