OHIO VALLEY — Due to extreme weather conditions, many customers of Ohio Valley Publishing (OVP), which includes the Gallipolis Daily Tribune, the Point Pleasant Register and The Daily Sentinel, have not been receiving delivery of their newspapers.
OVP’s offices have been receiving many calls from customers who haven’t been receiving their newspapers, Greg Weatherbee, regional manufacturing director for Civitas Media, OVP’s parent company, said.
Weatherbee said he wanted those home delivery customers to know they are being heard and will receive their newspapers as soon as the weather relents. Weatherbee guessed by Thursday, rising temperatures should allow for delivery in areas which some carriers have considered hazardous due to recent snows, icy conditions and consistently low, even dangerously low, temperatures.
“Roads should start improving by the end of the week and delivery should be back to normal,” Weatherbee said.
Carriers have been instructed to redeliver the newspapers their customers have missed when delivery resumes. If customers would prefer, they can receive credit for those days missed which would extend their subscriptions, Weatherbee said. Customers of The Daily Sentinel call 1-740-992-2155. Customers of the Point Pleasant Register and Gallipolis Daily Tribune call 1-740-446-2342.
“We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone’s understanding,” Weatherbee said.
