THIS week marks the very last Harrogate Advertiser in a broadsheet format, and the start of a new era on Thursday when we relaunch the newspaper in a compact format.
Readers and advertisers have told us in our market research they would prefer an easier-to-handle newspaper in a compact format. We know that readers will also value an earlier publication day, so the new look newspaper will be published a day early, on Thursday.
The newspapers will also benefit from fresh new designs, giving a modern feel, but still including all the local content we know our readers value.
Ackrill Media Group editor Jean MacQuarrie said: “It’s hugely exciting and we are delighted to launch our new compact newspaper next Thursday. The designs look fabulous, and the news pages are visually attractive and easy to read.”
A number of improvements have also been to the website www.harrogateadvertiser.co.uk and there will be far more content on line, better comment functionality and new displays for photographs.
Jean said: “These are really exciting times for the Harrogate Advertiser and our website, and we hope readers and advertisers will enjoy what is a fantastic new product with some great additional features.”
l We’ll be on the streets of Harrogate next Thursday to show off our new newspaper, and we want your comments on the new look Advertiser. Email the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org, call her on 01423 564321 or write to her 1 Cardale Park, Harrogate, HG3 1RZ
