DailyNews on hold until Monday

The next edition of DailyNews is scheduled for Monday, July 6.

The University of Windsor’s e-newsletter will not publish on July 1, 2, or 3. Canada Day is a statutory holiday; president Rob Gordon declared July 2 and 3, 2020, university holidays last week in appreciation for work by employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Editor Kevin Johnson says he knows some readers will miss finding DailyNews in their inboxes for the rest of the week, but notes the publication has been busier than usual this year.

“We usually slow down for the summer months, maybe producing two or three issues a week,” he says. “So far this year, we have continued with a daily schedule.”

By way of comparison, Johnson says, he published fewer than 150 stories in May and June 2019, while the same months in 2020 have seen 225 articles, an increase of more than 50 per cent.

“As long as correspondents keep contributing at this record pace, we’ll keep doing our best to inform our readership,” he says.
