Today’s edition of the Messenger-Inquirer marked the return of four sections on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Last year, we decided to go to a two-section paper on Monday and Tuesday in an effort to better control newsprint costs on the days of the week when advertising is generally at its lowest.
The reality is, however, that the papers were almost always the same size as before – 20 to 24 pages – but they were packaged in two sections rather than four.
The primary complaint I heard from readers was not that the paper contained less news than before (because it didn’t) but rather people liked the four sections because it makes the paper easier to share with the rest of the family.
We will also begin a new section on Tuesday called “The Link,” which will focus on how technology is impacting our daily lives. We hope you enjoy the changes.
