FAIRMONT?- Since 1874, the Sentinel has delivered news and information to people of the Fairmont area.
The Sentinel has been an integral part of life in southern Minnesota 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 Sentinel began delivering an Internet version to online readers. In 2012, we added a mobile version to allow readers to access the newspaper on devices such as iPhones.
The Sentinel has long provided comprehensive coverage of news, sports, opinions, news of record and other information. Neither our website nor mobile app is an exact copy of the printed version. Beginning on Wednesday, 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 they are located. The electronic version of the Sentinel will download to your phone, tablet or computer in a few seconds, and allow you to read the newspaper in the same manner you would if you were holding the printed edition in your hands.
Subscribers also will be able to enjoy the same website they have used for years, including an archive of thousands of articles.
After the electronic version is launched, you 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.
"The addition of an electronic addition as well as a subscription-based website will allow the Sentinel to serve our readers in whatever format they are most comfortable reading the newspaper," said Publisher Gary Andersen. "It's an exciting time to be in the publishing industry."
