Your new-look weekday Bay of Plenty Times


Have you seen the new-look weekday morning compact Bay of Plenty Times?

Today's edition marks the biggest change in the paper's 140-year history.

Your local daily paper is now available early morning, which means your news will be more timely, and the new format means it is more convenient to read wherever you are.

But we have also made other changes.

We have upgraded the content and given the paper a makeover, including a new page flow that emphasises local stories.

We are providing more local news, business news, rural and lifestyle content, and have overhauled your sports section with a focus on local and grassroots sport. We have new features such as a weekly schools page.

You'll find weather, puzzles, television, cinemas and family notices at the back of the paper. These will be in the same position each weekday.

On this page today is a guide on where to find things. We have also devoted the top of page 3 to a contents guide.

We've packed more into your new-look paper, and this revamp is the result of months of planning and work, and feedback from readers.

We hope you like the changes and welcome your feedback.

Enjoy your new paper.
