After several years of study, research, and exhaustive experimentation, the West Essex Tribune has finally found what we think is the best way to provide your community news in an electronic format.
We now have a brand new website and e-Edition, a digital version of our print newspaper. The e-Edition is an exact replica of the printed edition of the Tribune in a "flipbook" format. The e-Edition is easy and convenient; it is delivered right to your e-mail inbox and there’s nothing to download – just click the edition and begin reading.
We encourage you to visit www.westessextribune.net for the link to check out the new e-Edition, read breaking community news stories, learn about local events and more – all from the convenience of your computer, phone, iPad or any other mobile device. For a limited time, we will offer the e-Edition free of charge; later, it will be available only with your subscription to the print…
