Editorial: Bright and early read resolution we'll keep

By Kim Gillespie


We're a week into the New Year and I'll bet a few of you have already broken those resolutions. Some would say promises were made to be broken - but maybe we should resolve not to listen to those cynics so often.

Many resolutions involve the quest for a new you - whether it be a thinner, more muscular, healthier, more smokefree, happier, less lonely or more content you.

The Daily Post is set for a similar makeover, and we won't be breaking our resolution to bring you a better, bright and early, morning compact newspaper from March 11.

We're listening to you, through our in-paper survey and via your feedback, to make sure we have the right mix of content on relaunch. The paper will look a little different in its new, easy-to-read compact format, but we'll still bring you all you need to know about what's going on and who's doing what in your home town.

We're excited about the big changes, including bringing you the best and latest local news at the start of the day.

We can see you discussing the big local issues with workmates, family and friends after you've read about them in The Daily Post over breakfast. Maybe you'll visit our website or text or write to me and the team to comment on stories.

We'll continue to grow and improve our website, and it will complement our newspaper with updated breaking news on your desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile.

We love interacting with you through social media as well - so keep following, liking, replying, commenting, retweeting, sharing and reading us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

One week into 2013, and before we know it it'll be March 11 and we'll be bringing you a new-look morning paper. This will be your newspaper - we have asked you what you like about The Daily Post and you have responded. For those who have not yet given your views, there is still time. Please feel free to write to us at feedback@dailypost.co.nz
