Perhaps you’d like to wake up to a weather forecast without having to turn on the TV or get online.
Or you’d like severe weather called to your attention.
Or you want a heads-up on local breaking news.
Or you want high school basketball and football scores quickly after the games end.
The Herald Bulletin is offering a new, free service for these purposes and others. The alerts are delivered to your cellphone by text. According to your mobile phone plan, your carrier may apply a data charge. But if you have lots of data or unlimited data in your plan, there should be no additional charge to you.
To sign up for text alerts, visit heraldbulletin.com and click on the “sign up for text alerts” offer on the right side of our home page. You can also register by looking for a promotional ad in The Herald Bulletin and scanning the QR code in the ad with your smartphone.
If you registered for our previous text and email alert service, you will receive an email or text soon, offering to switch you over to the new service.
The registration is a la carte; you can sign up for just one category of alerts or as many as you’d like. In addition to daily weather forecasts, severe weather alerts and breaking news, you can sign up for prep sports and Anderson University scores, and other school-related alerts, school by school. Amber Alerts are also offered.
Our daily weather forecast alerts will arrive on your phone every morning at 7 o’clock, giving you a brief outlook for the day.
I hope you’ll consider taking advantage of these text alerts. They can help keep you abreast of what’s going on in Madison County. If you have questions or have difficulty registering, don’t hesitate to call or email me.
