Interlink founder and owner Bill Garber announced December 1, 2015, that Interlink President Brad Hill has become a stockholder in the company.

Interlink is a privately owned circulation management company serving the newspaper industry. Publishers of more than 1,700 newspapers across the US use Interlink services to grow newspaper subscription penetration and manage subscriber services, including delivery by mail or carrier.

Hill began working with Interlink in 2001 as a technical contractor after leaving his previous position as Network Administrator for a private school system in Tennessee. Recognizing his ability to bridge the gap between technical issues and non-technical people, Interlink offered him a permanent position handling the integration of Interlink Circulation into new customers’ business systems.

Tired of swimming upstream? Walk on water!

By William E. (Bill) Garber

Being a life-long weekly newspaper fan, of course The Week magazine is something of an inspiration to me.

I really admire how Felix Dennis came to create success for a weekly news magazine in the age of the Internet. He didn’t swim upstream, he walked on the digital waters!

The paper was low grade. The stories were last week’s news and borrowed from other publications, no less! The page count was thin even. And there was only the occasional ad.

Newspaper circulation revenue now trumps newspaper advertising revenue worldwidephoto_bill_garber

By William E. (Bill) Garber

People like to read newspapers and are obviously happy to pay for the privilege!

That is one way of reading the results of annual reporting by the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers, as reported by Rick Edmonds at Poynter.

While community newspapers are a special case, they are special in part because their subscribers are loyal in ways regional and metro newspapers dare not let themselves even dream of.

Postmaster General says USPS committed to improved tracking

Megan Brennan, who became the U.S. Postal Service’s first female postmaster general this year, told publishers attending NNA’s We Believe conference March 19 in Washington, D.C., that the key to delivery consistency is ‘visibility.’

She said the Postal Service is committed to improve its tracking ability to make sure newspapers in the system ‘have no place to run and no place to hide’ while in the postal network.

Interlink President Brad Hill, an NNA representative on the Mailers’ Technical Advisory Committee (MTAC), introduced Brennan at the opening session.
