PBC, White Hall Progress merge online editions


The online editions of the Pine Bluff Commercial and White Hall Progress have joined forces. The merger allows the newsroom staff to update the Progress online throughout the week with the latest news, sports, features, obituaries and opinions from White Hall, Redfield, Hardin and Jefferson.

Look for the “White Hall” tab on the PBC website or visit www.WhiteHallProgress.com.

Print subscribers and online-only subscribers now have a one-stop shop for all their Jefferson County news. Don’t have a subscription? Visit http://www.pbcommercial.com/content/subscribe.html or call 534-3400 for more information. Copies of the Progress print edition — published weekly on Wednesdays — are still free.

The merger is the latest addition to the ongoing expansion of the newspaper’s online offerings. The Commercial launched its Morning Briefing e-mail newsletter in February and its new website in November 2011. With the launch came an online version of the website specifically for mobile phones. Since then access to The Commercial’s archives have also been expanded.
