If you’re new to the area, or just want to read a local newspaper, you should check out the eEdition app of the Asheville Citizen-Times. The eEdition app includes all stories, photos, ads, and current issues from the print edition of the Asheville Citizen-Times. The app handles data in a variety of ways, as described below. Before you download the eEdition app, though, it is worth familiarizing yourself with the newspaper’s online and print versions.

Asheville Citizen-Times

The Asheville Citizen-Times was founded in 1870, and serves the counties of Asheville, Hendersonville, and Buncombe counties in North Carolina. It is a subsidiary of the Gannett Company, a media company that publishes more than 85 daily newspapers and 900 non-daily newspapers. The company also publishes newspapers in the United Kingdom under the name Newsquest and operates more than 20 televisions, as well as providing news and advertising via its subsidiary Captivate.

Asheville Citizen

The Asheville Citizen was established in 1870 and is one of the oldest newspapers in the United States. The newspaper served five counties in North Carolina and was owned by Charles A. Webb. In 1885, the paper was expanded to a daily edition and became the only morning paper west of Charlotte. In addition to its newspaper publication, the Citizen was a strong advocate for economic development in the Mountain region. In fact, it was the first newspaper in the state to use a linotype machine.

Asheville Citizen-Times building

The Asheville Citizen-Times building once housed the office and printing facilities of the daily paper. Now, the building will be home to a boutique vinyl pressing plant. The new business will be called Citizen Vinyl, and will also feature a bar/cafe and a record store. Founded by veteran music producer Gar Ragland, Citizen Vinyl will be North Carolina’s first on-site pressing plant.

Asheville Citizen-Times digital replica

The Asheville Citizen-Times digital replication will be the same as its print counterpart but will feature a number of additional features, including clipping and sharing articles. It will also allow readers to customize text size. Those who subscribe to the newspaper will also have access to the USA TODAY Network’s e-Editions and crossword puzzle. However, you should be aware that the digital replica of the newspaper will not be available for download until the promo period is over.

Asheville Citizen-Times home delivery

The Asheville Citizen-Times is changing its home delivery model, and a big part of that is the discontinuation of Saturday home delivery. Instead, the newspaper will now be delivered to homes on a six-day schedule, which includes Saturday. In addition to the news, the new model will include local ads and features. If you prefer to receive your newspaper electronically, you will be able to access it whenever you want.

Asheville Citizen-Times editorial policy

The Asheville Citizen-Times’ editorial policy states that journalists cannot engage in activities that could put the newspaper at risk for a conflict of interest. Employees are prohibited from participating in commercial arrangements with studios or publishers. In addition, staff members are not allowed to accept gifts from manufacturers, art directors or vendors. The Times’ technology editor and photographers are also prohibited from participating in commercial arrangements with vendors. Nonetheless, they are permitted to engage in community affairs. While staff members may not solicit or receive gifts from vendors or manufacturers, they cannot recommend or endorse products or services that might be of interest to readers. They may not use the Times’ name in private activities, unless it is in the public interest.
