  • The Advocate: coming soon to a front lawn near you, New Orleans
If you want a daily, delivered paper in New Orleans after Oct. 1, The Advocate is working to make that happen. The Baton Rouge newspaper, which had already announced its intention to move into the New Orleans market, is now taking orders for Crescent City subscribers:

Good news, New Orleans!

The Advocate New Orleans Edition will be available October 1st. Call 504-529-0522 for a special introductory rate!

A 6-month subscription to The Advocate in New Orleans is $89.70, or $14.95 per month for 7-day-a-week delivery. In contrast, the relaunched Times-Picayune will be $16.95 per month for 3-day delivery plus the promised Monday New Orleans Saints section. (The 3-day option still isn't listed on the T-P's "Subscribe" pages, either here or here.)

More under the jump, including the announcement of a New Orleans bureau chief for The Advocate ...

Last month, The Advocate advertised for six new positions to staff its new New Orleans bureau. Yesterday it announced that The Times-Picayune's Sara Pagones would be its New Orleans bureau editor. Pagones is a veteran of the T-P's editorial page and previously worked as a reporter at the paper.

Pagones referred a request for comment to Advocate publisher David Manship, who has not returned Gambit's call of this morning.
