New weekly newspaper?

3 posts in this topic

Walking to my car yesterday, I saw a new black box sitting with the familar real estate books boxes. It was for Yes Weekly newspaper. I have never heard of this paper and I thought it may have a revamp of Go Triad or Relish newsweeklies. But it was not but it seems to be a much different type of newsweekly. At first, I thought it was some sort of right-wing local Republican paper as the first few articles keep talking about GOP events like when William Kristol of the Weekly Standard came to town for a presentation. There is even an Ann Coulter column but then I read some articles about Muslim rights and then some avant-garde art reviews.

This seems to be a strange duck of a newsweekly. It also appears from its volume and issue number (vol 2 issue 7) that it has been around for awhile.

There appears to be quite a bit of editorial content dealing with UNC-G as well as Greensboro as a whole; very little of the material or ads concern Winston. Many of the articles, and a very diverse lot they were, seem to be generated by a writer named Jordan Green.

Does any body know anything more about this newspaper? Can the Triad support three or more free newspaper weeklies that with local arts and entertainment?

Yes Weekly has been around for a while, but mostly in Greensboro. GoTriad has recently decided to scale back in Winston-Salem. I have heard that Yes has intentions of gaining a greater presence in Winston-Salem now.
