New look coming to the Springfield Sun next week
Change is the name of the game in the news industry.
For the past decade, the news business has undergone numerous transformations — from the way the news is delivered to readers, to how readers interact with stories, to the way we present our coverage of our communities.
In the past few years, this spirit of transformation has been most apparent in our digital efforts. Now, when you visit SpringfieldSun. com, you find new content throughout the day. We aim to cover the events of your community as they hap- pen, delivering local news at the speed of life. Our stories are complemented by photo galleries, videos and more digital content.
Amid all these digital changes, improving our print product has always remained a top priority, and you’ll soon be able to see that.
Starting with our issue that hits newsstands Sunday, Nov. 2, we’ll be debuting a brand new look for your newspaper.
At its core, the redesign is meant to make the newspaper more useful to you.
You’ll find more quick bites of news and more ways for you to interact with us. Page A1 has been reimagined as a guide to start your week. There will be a mix of news for those with just a little time to spend with us alongside the longer stories for those who have more time to engage.
Comprehensively, the type of story you’ll find in the newspaper is changing. As more people use digital sources to find out “what” has happened, the printed edition becomes the place to learn “why” it happened. Look for broader, more explanatory stories as well as for more analysis and commentary.
The appearance of the pa- per will change to adopt a cleaner, more modern typography.
Even though the methods and pace at which we deliver the news — through our website, www. S p r i n g f i e l d S u n . com, and our Facebook and Twitter accounts — have evolved, our print product remains. We aim for this updated style to enhance your reading experience.
Although change may be the name of the game in the news industry, some things will always remain the same.
We remain committed to bringing you the news that matters to you and covering your community. Serving our readers by supplying you with the information you need remains the reason we’re here, and that dedication will not waiver — no matter the look of our newspaper or website.
So after you check out our new look next week, we want to hear what you think, positively and negatively. Email your thoughts to Editor Thomas Celona at email@example.com. We welcome your comments, thoughts and suggestions. After all, this is your Springfield Sun.
