It’s a new era for your Tele­graph

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Front Page -

THE final edi­tion of The Evening Tele­graph is pub­lished to­day be­fore our new bumper weekly pa­per hits the streets next Thurs­day.

It is the start of a new era in which we will be to­tally com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing a com­pre­hen­sive cov­er­age of Peter­bor­ough’s news around-the-clock on­line, through our new app and in a bumper Peter­bor­ough Tele­graph news­pa­per of up to 160 pages.

It’s a ma­jor change in how we de­liver the news but our com­mit­ment to lo­cal cov­er­age is greater than ever.

And we have never been busier. For in­stance this week­end, our news re­porters and pho­tog­ra­phers will be out and about in the city cov­er­ing the start of Peter­bor­ough’s three­day Wil­low Fes­ti­val - back for the first time in seven years.

We will be re­port­ing from the Lido open air swim­ming pool where soar­ing tem­per­a­tures prom­ise to make the start of a new sea­son a huge splash.

We will also be drop­ping into Wer­ring­ton to cover the fes­tiv­i­ties of the an­nual Wer­ring­ton Car­ni­val, as well as cov­er­ing all the lat­est break­ing news.

News ed­i­tor Paul Grin­nell said: “This is a hugely ex­cit­ing and chal­leng­ing time for us but we are ab­so­lutely de­ter­mined to pull out all the stops to en­sure we pro­vide our readers with the cov­er­age

Our sports team will be out in force across the city and the sur­round­ing area mak­ing sure they bring you all the lat­est sports news.

Sports ed­i­tor Bob French said: “This is a thrilling new chal­lenge and we will be en­sur­ing our readers don’t miss any­thing they have be­come used to see­ing in The Evening Tele­graph.

“Our reg­u­lar columnists will be stay­ing with us. We will still be pro­vid­ing all the favourite items but in a slightly dif­fer­ent for­mat and there will also be some ex­tra fea­tures.”

Row­land Hob­son, chief pho­tog­ra­pher, said: “While in some ways it is a sad day, our pho­tog­ra­phers will rel­ish the chal­lenge of grasp­ing the new tech­nol­ogy. We are de­ter­mined to con­tinue to get out and about to take the pic­tures of the events and ac­tiv­i­ties

the and in print.”

Ed­i­tor Mark Ed­wards said: “The new weekly Peter­bor­ough Tele­graph has a com­pletely new look and has been redesigned with the help of a top an in­ter­na­tional de­sign agency. We are sure readers will en­joy the new pa­per and please send me any feed­back you have.

“The PT will still be set­ting the news agenda, chal­leng­ing lo­cal au­thor­i­ties, cov­er­ing court cases, in­ves­ti­gat­ing is­sues and bring­ing you the best in sport and fea­tures. We’d like to thank all our readers for their sup­port over the years, and for the tremen­dously heart­en­ing sup­port we have had for the new weekly pa­per – it’s your pa­per and we are go­ing to keep it that way.”
