Thanks so much, Suzanne, for hosting this most interesting challenge for the month of September! ๐Ÿ™‚

Question # 29

29. Does your hometown have a newspaper? ย Does it come out daily, bi-weekly, weekly, or some other frequency? Does your hometown have its own radio station?

My Answer:

We do have a hometown newspaper, called the Lubbock Avalanche Journal. It was founded in 1900, and is a daily. There used to be a morning and an evening edition, but then was only issued for the morning.ย  In 1997 they launched the digital newspaper, called LubbockOnline.com. So now we have a choice of how we read the newspaper.

We used to take the home delivery of the paper, but stopped a few years ago, as we get most local and national news from the TV.

For radio stations, I saw a list someone made that said there are approximately 35 FM radio stations, and 14 AM stations here and the area. They cover all formats, from music, of all types, sports, news, and talk radio. I have my favorites, which are the oldies music stations, and the rock stations.

Thanks for visiting! Peace }i{

    • I’m so happy you’ve enjoyed reading about my hometown memories, and also some interesting facts about our city. Thanks so much for your visits here, and your most welcome comments. I’ll miss doing the challenge, as it is over for this year, but Suzanne will host a new one next September. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I was positively SHOCKED by the number of radio stations you can pick up there, so I Googled ours and I was positively SHOCKED again! WOW! I had no idea! Indy has 83! Who knew? Not me! *listens to like, five* lol

    • I was surprised, too, as I didn’t have any idea there were so many stations around here. Like you, I only listen to two or three that play music I like. Wow…y’all have a lot there! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. That’s a lot of music! I like oldies, too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Several stations can be picked up here, but I don’t think the local (Wharton) radio station plays anymore.

    Our hometown paper was a couple of times a day, morning and afternoon, for years, but I think that was before my time. I only remember a once-a-day paper. Here in Wharton, the paper only comes out on Wednesdays and Saturdays and still is a very tiny paper. Both papers have online editions, but the Wharton one is always behind with the obituaries, which is the part of the paper that I head to first.

    Thanks for sharing about your town’s media with us. Have a blessed day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • You’re most welcome! I always did like taking the actual paper, especially the Sunday one, because of the comics, and of course the crossword puzzles. Seems our paper got way smaller in number of pages, since it went online, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I prefer the print paper, too. I didn’t enjoy the smell of it, though. That smell of fresh ink gives me an icky tummy and a headache. I was never any good at the cross-word puzzles, but I loved the word seeks and cryptograms.

        What was/is your favorite comic? As a kid, I enjoyed The Phantom, Snuffy Smith, and a few others that I can’t remember the names of at the moment.

        Have a blessed weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Yes, and that ink would get your fingers black! … Newspaper comics? I liked a lot of them. Let’s see… Alley Oop, Li’l Abner, Nancy…so many. I do remember Snuffy Smith! My granny got the morning paper (we didn’t), and they had Dondi, and Little Orphan Annie, which I liked, too. ๐Ÿ™‚
