Brian Stelter, host of CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” reports that subscribers to the Boston Globe might actually receive their newspapers tomorrow, as the reporters themselves are delivering it.

Amazing. Reporters of the paper that produced Spotlight investigations getting up at 4 am to deliver Sunday paper. https://t.co/pmC97vysNf

The Globe blames its delivery problems on a new delivery company that was supposed to have subscribers’ papers on their doorstops this week. Instead, the paper has been overwhelmed with complaints from angry readers. Reporters then started volunteering to fill in.
There are 65+ emails in my Globe inbox from reporters & editors, volunteering to deliver tomorrow's papers. So much love for @BostonGlobe.

It turns out they’re not the first paper with such an arrangement, but likely the largest.

Just to clarify, there is an online, subscription-based version of the Boston Globe.
