New e-Edition delivers complete Daily Telegraph to computers around globe

BLUEFIELD — The complete edition of each day’s Bluefield Daily Telegraph is now available to readers across the region — and the globe — with the launch of the newspaper’s new e-Edition today.

Although the newspaper currently offers a web site featuring selected stories and photos, the e-Edition provides the option of reading the entire paper — front to back — via the Internet each day.

“I am proud to say that the BDT e-Edition is another step in the evolution of the Telegraph in the electronic age,” Publisher Randy Deason said. “We will continue ‘bdtonline’ as a free website, but for those readers who want to read the Telegraph as it appears in print they can log on to our e-Edition. Another feature of the electronic edition is that advertisers will gain additional exposure with all ads appearing on the reader’s computer screen as they do in print.”

“I am very excited about the launch of our new electronic edition,” Circulation Director Chris Dorton said. “I am impressed to know that our product can now be viewed in its entirety worldwide.”

The e-Edition will be provided free to readers, with registration, until Jan. 1, 2008. At that time, those interested in purchasing the e-Edition can do so at the same rate of a home subscription to the Daily Telegraph.

Readers and other interested individuals can log on to the e-Edition via the newspaper’s current website, At the homepage, click on the white box under the banner that reads, “e-Edition.” The website can be accessed directly at

At the e-Edition homepage, readers can launch a demo to guide them through the paper or register to begin viewing the Daily Telegraph immediately. Readers can choose one of several options for reading the paper online, including single-, double- and thumbnail-page views. Selected stories, photos and advertisements can also be “clicked” for individual viewing.
