The fo­cus now is on dig­i­tal re­port­ing

The Observer - - NEWS | OPINION -

IT’S fair to say there’s a kick in our step here at The Ob­server.

For this news­pa­per, like all news­pa­pers, the dig­i­tal rev­o­lu­tion has brought about the big­gest change since the print­ing press. We’re also go­ing through some changes that are uniquely ours.

Like Glad­stone, The

Ob­server has had its highs and lows over the years but we are set­tling into a new era and there’s a very pos­i­tive feel around the news­room.

Thank you to those read­ers who’ve told me you like the di­rec­tion we’re head­ing in.

It’s been al­most three months since I took over the reins as ed­i­tor.

It’s my phi­los­o­phy that while a news­pa­per re­flects its com­mu­nity, it should also be a voice for the peo­ple and for those lead­ers in gov­ern­ment, business and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions, work­ing to im­prove all as­pects of life here.

❝ Ev­ery day we work, with all the lim­i­ta­tions in our re­al­ity, to bring you The Ob­server.

We’re a voice for those who don’t have one, for the weak­est and most vul­ner­a­ble among us and a soap­box to cel­e­brate the best, the up­com­ing and at times the ridicu­lous.

Ev­ery day we work, with all the lim­i­ta­tions in our re­al­ity, to bring you The Ob­server.

Un­like the pre­dic­tions, news­pa­pers are not dead, far from it, but they are chang­ing.

The fo­cus more and more is on dig­i­tal jour­nal­ism and whether we like it or not, that won’t change.

Re­gard­less of the de­liv­ery, a com­mu­nity with­out a news­pa­per is much poorer but we need your sup­port in or­der to sup­port you.

For just $1 a day, we’re of­fer­ing you un­lim­ited dig­i­tal ac­cess to The Ob­server, The

Courier Mail+ and The Ob­server de­liv­ered to your door six days a week or for 50c a day you can have un­lim­ited dig­i­tal ac­cess.

It’s the best deal in town, and will en­sure the Glad­stone re­gion con­tin­ues to have a voice in this ever-crowded world. — Christine McKee Ed­i­tor
