The Half Hollow Hills Newspaper will be merged with The Long-Islander as part of Long Islander News implementing a strategy to return our flagship title to a newspaper that provides townwide coverage.
The merger, which will take effect with the Nov. 10 edition, returns The Long-Islander to its roots as a townwide newspaper, and will bring an expanded product for all readers in all the communities we serve. We are not reducing our coverage of the Dix Hills, Melville and Wheatley Heights areas, we are including it in an expanded version of The Long-Islander.
Our largest paper, The Long-Islander, is known for providing in-depth coverage to townwide issues, particularly coverage of local government. In addition, we find that our readers’ interest naturally extends to neighboring communities.
As a result of the merger, paid subscribers of The Half Hollow Hills Newspaper will automatically receive The Long-Islander, for the balance of theirsubscription. The newspaper will expand its scope to include Dix Hills, Melville and Wheatley Heights. In the case of readers who subscribe to both papers, time remaining on your subscription to The Half Hollow Hills Newspaper will be added to your existing Long-Islander subscription.
All of the communities we serve will continue to be covered in the expanded Long-Islander.
