Beginning in early 2016, Jones & Blount will become part of the new North State Journal, North Carolina’s only statewide newspaper. Please see below for answers to some common questions.


NSM_NameWhy are you combining with the North State Journal?

We believe there is a market for a statewide newspaper in North Carolina, and unparalleled coverage of state government and politics is essential to any statewide news product. Jones & Blount will become the home for state politics and policy coverage in the North State Journal, both online and in print.


Will I still be able to access Jones & Blount?

Until the full North State Journal website launches at NSJonline.com in early 2016, Jones & Blount will remain right here. After that time, subscribers can read Jones & Blount content online and in print.


Will the North State Journal publish every day?

The North State Journal will publish five days a week: Daily Tuesday through Friday, plus Sunday. The North State Journal’s website, NSJonline.com, will be updated as news happens.
