In journalism “the lede” is the start of a news story, the most important part.
And, that’s what you’ll find in our new daily digital publication The Lede – each day’s most important stories from Birmingham and the surrounding area.
As a subscriber to The Birmingham News, you have access every morning to The Lede on your computer, tablet or smartphone.
In each edition, you’ll find a selection of stories – some of them exclusive – that go deeper into local news than what you’ll find in your newspaper pages. And, you’ll find this local report every day – even on days when we don’t publish The Birmingham News.
Stories will examine the region’s growth, development, business, people and culture. Each morning, The Lede delivers exclusive coverage of metro Birmingham, its business and industry, its growth and those making it happen. Plus, the day’s top headlines, analysis of local issues, and stories of people, places and things to do.
Stories won’t just be in words. You’ll be able to watch and listen to videos and podcasts in each edition about sports, Southern comedy and the good in Alabama. And, you’ll have access to several interactive games, daily comics and more.
To access The Lede, go to www.BirminghamLede.com and activate your subscription.
iOS and Android apps also are available for download at the Apple Store and Google Play, as part of your subscription to The Birmingham News.
