Welcome to the Sunday News-Press & Leader. You are looking at a piece of history, as this is the first Sunday edition of either paper in 26 years.
And, indeed, that short-lived experiment from September 1983 to January 1985 may very well have been the only Sunday edition ever published in the 100-year-plus history of either the Burbank Leader or Glendale News-Press. On Friday, I braved the back room of our newspaper office — charmingly called "the morgue" — trying to find additional Sunday editions. I found none.
We have bound copies of the News-Press going back to the 1920s, dusty tomes filled with advertisements for "the latest French fashions," and declaring that "Tuesday will be Glendale's new shopping day." Those early-century papers, as far as I could tell, only published Monday through Friday.
