Things get lost in a move: Spare change that slipped out of couch cushions or got pushed to the back of a drawer. Knick-knacks you didn't really like all that much anyway. That coffee mug I left soaking in the sink... shoot.
One thing we didn't want to get lost in the shuffle of our newsroom's recent move is the news of the move itself -- or our new phone numbers. That ran on page three of Sunday's Courier-News with the headline "Change of address won't affect commitment to Elgin, northern Fox Valley." Here it is again, from Sun-Times Media West Editorial Director Mike Cetera, in its entirety.
The Courier-News may be changing addresses, but our commitment to Elgin and the Fox Valley is unwavering.
Beginning Monday, advertising, the newsroom and other operations will be housed at Sun-Times Media's central facility in Aurora.
We hope the change is imperceptible to readers and advertisers. This move won't affect our deep roots and love for our hometown -- the city of Elgin -- and our commitment to serve other communities such as Hampshire, South Elgin, East and West Dundee and Carpentersville.
Our new phone numbers, more, after the jump.
In fact, we expect most reporters, photographers and advertising representatives will spend little time in the Aurora building. Instead, our employees will use technology to do their jobs from within the communities they cover. So when you see a reporter at city hall or a photographer shooting a local prep basketball game, be sure to stop by and say hello.
As a result of the move, our phone numbers will change. Please find below the new numbers you can use to reach our staff. We'll also periodically continue to publish our new numbers.
Mail can be sent to The Courier-News at 495 N. Commons Drive, Suite 200, Aurora, IL 60504.
