Editorial: Exciting changes heading your way

By Kim Gillespie


Thanks to you I've had a very busy week.


Not that I'm complaining - in fact I'm especially pleased because it was a busy and productive few days.


Your role in this? Your feedback on The Daily Post as it is now and as you'd like to see it has been our focus as we finalise plans to relaunch the newspaper in just three weeks' time.


Over the next few weeks, I'll be telling you more about some of the changes we have planned - the biggest of which you know about already.


In one swoop The Daily Post will undergo one of its biggest transformations in decades - going from a large format afternoon newspaper to a morning-delivered compact edition.


This week, we've been talking to editors of the country's biggest papers about their revamps, consulting the design experts who work on those papers and finalising the new look of The Daily Post and the day-to-day news and feature content.


We figure a fresh look requires some fresh stories, features and faces to go along with it.


But don't worry - your favourite features, columns and puzzles will still be here.


Meanwhile, the front page will feature a major change we'll only reveal closer to the relaunch on March 11.


It's an exciting time here at The Daily Post as we count down to what will be a historic moment for this paper and this region.
