De Soto Explorer is going to more compact size

January 28, 2009

The De Soto Explorer is getting a makeover.

Beginning with next week’s edition, the Explorer will be printed in a more compact design than readers have enjoyed in the past with their newspaper. We’ll also be adding features, including a seven-day weather outlook, a photo package that focuses on events around “Our Hometown,” and “5 Questions” on topics in the news.

The new design is intended to be easier for readers to handle and navigate. It also will offer advertisers a new package of standardized ad sizes.

“The smaller page format is designed to ease our production costs and still offer readers and advertisers, in tandem with, the best local news product available,” said Elvyn Jones, editor.

Timely news and feature stories, which readers have come to expect, will continue as usual, Jones said.

“We might arrive at your home in a smaller package, but we’ll still have big news,” Jones said.
