There’s no better time to get your news on the go, and we’re set up to help you do just that.

Even if you read The Times every day or visit regularly, you still need a way to keep up with the breaking stories nationally, internationally and locally.

More and more readers are finding that way to be email newsletters, and we’ve been setting up new ones covering different high interest topics.

It’s easy to register for these and get the headlines regularly on your phone, tablet or computer. Visit and see our complete list on the right hand side of the page.

Each day we offer morning newsletters for our e-edition, daily headlines, weather, and business news. We also offer a daily evening news edition of the latest headlines.

Our business newsletter, Business Briefing, has been growing fast, with more than 3,000 recipients. It arrives to your inbox at 5:30 a.m. with our local business stories and the latest national stories.

We offer other newsletters on a weekly basis. Among the topics are our podcasts, travel, food & dining, prep sports, health & fitness and home and garden.

Do you enjoy our 219 entertainment section on Thursdays? Sign up for the weekly 219 newsletter for all kinds of ideas of what to do in the Region and beyond.

Regional newsletters are about go live for Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties. We have a lot of content each week in our different sections, but you’ll get all of it for each county when you sign up for the newsletter.

There’s also a weekly “best of” newsletter for top stories, galleries, videos and digital exclusives, delivered to your inbox on Fridays.

Start February by visiting and taking a few minutes to sign up for what news you’d like on the go. You’ll be informed wherever you are.
