i dont care who works there, or what they do the paper is shit. the only thing exciting about the logan banner is the arrest report which is normally two miles long and obituaries. it needs to shut down

The Logan Banner needs to write more articles about local news, not wait until the story breaks through Charleston or Huntington papers. Major story recently was the four local officers accused of gang rape. Still very little in the Logan Banner and apparently the journalist got very information on the few questions posed. At the lease ask the questions and remark the person was not coming forth with answers. At least the readers would know the story was not forgotten and the Logan Banner did have questions unanswered? The Logan Banner don't want to name these officers, but local arrest, they will plaster everything they are accused of including their names, addresses, number of maybe drugs found about the great details.
More local news of intrest of Logan citizens.

I agree, the banner has gotten terrible and not worth the money. Our banner lady is hateful and drives like a crazy person.

Ehhh, I have a lot of problems with the Banner or things I wish were in there that aren't, but I think they serve their market pretty well. I don't think the people of Logan expect or demand much more. It is a lazy unmotivated publication serving a lazy unmotivated public -- why should it be anything else?
woohoo

Things went downhill for the banner when it was bought by a corp. out of Virginia. Many of the better employees were fired, and others like Keith Davis left because they didn't care for the new paradigms being put in place and seeing their friends being let go unfairly.
There are still a few good people working there, though.
Sadly, not in the investigative reporting department. Nearly all area news agencies have began relying on other organizations to do their work for them.

A lot of people don't "get the logan banner." I don't either. But, I read it often to stay up on local events. Wouldn't you say it serves the general Logan public? It has around 10,000 subscribers.

Just being curious. You don't have to identify yourself, but what are you doing in Logan that doesn't make you lazy and unmotivated?
woohoo

The Banner sucks, I agree with Tim on a few things. I mostly read the obits and jail report. I get so tired of the Banner not wanting to print letters or storys. Its a waste of time to read anything else in it. I hate going to the guestbook because it is mostly old farts talking about hot dogs (food) or old war storys...boring. THis site is better. Take a lesson from this site Banner, dnt be afraid of getting sued and write better articles......update everyday too!! I guess they cant afford for Martha to go in everyday to update on the comp. There are storys out there and they are to afraid to tell readers about them. I hear other papers put anyones name in their papers.

If they don't have enough reporters, they should hire some more, there are alot of things going on in the county that are alot more important than every blooming thing that happens at the hatfield mccoy board meetings.

since they sold out to a large conglomerate, they have went to pot from low rent comics to cheaper paper. it is all about cutting corners with them. the investigative team turns in a whole lot more than appears in the paper. the editor has the final say on what goes in the newspaper. they do not have the staff to adequately run a newspaper. reporters are expected to come in, work their shift, attend meetings at night and have it all ready to go to print, all without working overtime. agreed, they should either go back to old format or sell out to someone who knows how to run a paper, not run it in the ground.

Being a taxpayer has nothing to do with it. The Banner is a private business. If you have heard any of the media out there over the past several years, you'd know that newspapers are having horrible drops in revenues due to the internet news, emails, blogs, and general lack of readership. All of this makes it hard for many papers to survive at all. I am glad that we have something at least.

You also get what you pay for. If you don't subscribe, then you can't complain - first of all. Second, the fee is only ten bucks a month. What do you want for that? You know what a reporter at the Banner makes? Not much. No one of quality would work there to start with - so you get what you pay for.
