News Never Sleeps: Boston Globe Reporters, Editors to Deliver Newspapers Overnight

If nothing else, a delivery issue plaguing subscribers to the Boston Globe has proven just how much its reporters and editors love their paper.

Massachusetts' largest daily publication switched to a new delivery company on Monday, reporting on Thursday that it had caused deliveries to readers to be late, with some not receiving the paper at all.

With the issues persisting, dozens of staff members volunteered to spend the hours between midnight and dawn delivering the Sunday edition.

"More than 100 Boston Globe business operations and newsroom staffers and other associates are volunteering to help deliver the Sunday Globe tomorrow," the paper told necn in a statement.

"A key part of being a reporter is having people see your work, so that's a big part of the reason why so many of us are volunteering tonight, because we just want people to see our journalism," crime reporter Maria Cramer said.

The Boston Globe asks anyone who is suffering from delivery issues to call the paper or go to its website to report them.

"More than anything, we just want people to get their papers," Cramer added.

More to come.
