Afternoon newspaper makes a comeback, online

Afternoon newspapers died in many areas, including here, because it was difficult to distribute the paper amid the daytime traffic. Online, traffic isn’t a problem. So now the Chronicle is now putting out a 4 p.m. edition for its iPad readers.

“The Afternoon Edition provides an update on all local, national and international news from the day, plus a recap of the day's financial news,” a press release from the Chronicle states. “Users can also get a preview of the night's sporting action, as well as plan their commutes home. The app also provides a listing of entertainment options for after work and photo galleries from events from the previous evening.”

Editor Ward Bushee says stay tuned for more features that will be added to the Chronicle app in coming weeks.
