Introducing ‘Press Rewind’

by | Jul 7, 2024 | Press Rewind

Editor’s note: We’re in the news business here at the Fredericksburg Free Press, and as such, strive not to miss any stories of import to our community.

But we also know that our readers are busy people whose lives don’t revolve around our daily 5 a.m. newsletter (as much as we would love that to be the case).

Introducing ‘Press Rewind,’ a weekly feature appearing in Sunday’s newsletter that will catch you up on the week that was and prime you for the one ahead. Inside, you’ll find a curated list of our top 5 stories — as determined by impact as opposed to web impressions — as well as other insights related to FFP content.

As we roll this feature out, we’re open to both feedback and suggestions. Email the newsroom at: [email protected] or reach out via our news tip line.

the beading sweat that cools us.
Refresh, then perspire.
