Things look a little different around here.
There is something nostalgic about a newspaper and flipping through the pages while you enjoy your coffee, reading up on the latest community news, entertainment, sports and more.
As much as we enjoy the nostalgia, change is inevitable and it’s time that we make a few tweaks.
Starting today, Aug. 2, the Nanaimo News Bulletin has a new look. Our paper size has changed to a shorter and we like to think a more modern format that may prove easier to hold and flip through.
One of the reasons for the change is so that the News Bulletin and all other Black Press Media news publications offer the same look and feel across British Columbia.
Black Press Media remains committed to being environmentally friendly by continuing to print on recycled newspaper with special vegetable-based inks that will make the paper safe for use in your gardens and compost.
Our paper may be shorter in stature, but by making small adjustments such as the number of columns per page, we hope that we’ll be able to fit in as many stories as before.
Sometimes we’ll be a little bit short on space in the newspaper to share all the articles we would like, but that always seems to be the case and we encourage readers to look for our articles online first – our website is updated many times during the day, every day, on weekdays and on weekends.
When we were putting together our special section of the paper recently, 30 Years in our Community, it was interesting to see how the News Bulletin had changed many times over the past three decades, front to back, both in design and content.
We appreciate those who have continued to read the News Bulletin through all our updates and redesigns and refreshes. Here’s the latest, and probably not the last.
