ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. --

The Oct, 28 edition of the Robins Rev-Up is the last edition until a new contract is secured. In the meantime, news and information regarding base events and activities can be found on this page, the Robins AFB official home page, at www.robins.af.mil or on the official Robins Air Force Base Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/RobinsPublicAffairs/.

Further, units are encouraged to write about the news in their organization, clear it through their supervisors and submit it through the Robins Public Affairs organizational box at 78abw.pa.office@us.af.mil, or to Geoff Janes, Robins Public Affairs Command Information chief, at vance.janes@us.af.mil.

The Telegraph published and distributed the newspaper for Robins Air Force Base for nearly 20 years.  In anticipation of the expiration of the current contract, The Telegraph notified Robins that they did not intend to compete for the new contract as it was no longer a financially viable venture for their company.

Robins and Telegraph officials held several meetings to determine if a mutually-beneficial solution could be reached, but none were unsuccessful. The Telegraph did extend its services to Robins for an additional 30 days to provide more time for the transition.

We anticipate the next Rev-Up publishing and distribution contract will be awarded on a competitive basis in the upcoming months.  Awarding a new contract is a lengthy process and no timetable can be set at this time, but we are taking all efforts to expedite the restoration of RevUp operations.
