News At Your Fingertips

The Post-Journal is adding new ways to read the newspaper.

Since 1826, The Post-Journal has delivered valuable news and information to people in southern Chautauqua County.

The Post-Journal has been an integral part of life in the region for generations, delivering news from your neighborhood and beyond directly to your door. But as technology changes, so do newspapers.

More than a decade ago, The Post-Journal began delivering an Internet version to online readers. In 2012 we also added a mobile version to allow readers to access the newspaper on devices such as iPhones.

The Post-Journal has long provided readers with comprehensive coverage of local news, sports, opinions, news of record and other information important to the people in our coverage area.

Neither our website nor mobile app is an exact copy of the printed version. Beginning on March 13, you will be able to read the entire newspaper, online, every day. Every page, every story, every advertisement, now will be available to our subscribers electronically regardless of where you are located. The electronic version of The Post-Journal will download to your phone, tablet or computer in a few seconds and allow you to read the newspaper in the same manner as if you were holding the printed edition in your hands.

All current print newspaper subscribers get the paper delivered each morning, but now will also have full access to the e-edition and, allowing them to read a digital version of the newspaper directly on their computer, tablet or smartphone, as part of their subscription. After the electronic edition is launched, subscribers will only need to answer a few questions to link your digital account to your subscription information. After that you will be able to access both the website and electronic version of the newspaper. Readers who do not wish to get the printed version of the newspaper can opt for a digital-only subscription to deliver both the web and digital edition to them for one cost.

The digital version will be an exact copy of the newspaper that has been delivered to area homes for generations. Readers will be able to scan the headlines, read the stories and even “clip” out stories to be viewed later.

Non-subscribers will be able to view the beginning of each local story only.

The digital edition can be downloaded to a computer as well as a tablet or smartphone via an easy-to-download app at, available on March 13 as well. The quick download will feature every story, photo, advertisement and listing found in the print edition and will become available at the same time the newspaper is being printed.

Newspapers, including The Post-Journal, continue to evolve to meet the information needs of a changing base of readers and users of the latest technology. Reading the news electronically is a valuable part of many people’s day. With the addition of a digital version of the newspaper, that value is intensified.

“The addition of an electronic edition as well as a subscription-based website will allow The Post-Journal to serve our readers in whatever format they are most comfortable reading the newspaper,” said Publisher Mike Bird. “It’s an exciting time to be in the publishing industry.”
