From the desk of Enquirer Media publisher Margaret Buchanan:
I’m pleased to formally announce that, after more than 170 years in its current form, we at The Enquirer will unfold our new newspaper in just two weeks. Monday, March 11, we’ll debut the new Enquirer in an easy-to-hold, easy-to-read size. We’ll be one of the first newspapers in the country to introduce this new size. It will be easier to navigate with bolder headlines and fewer stories that “jump” off of section fronts. Expect to see vibrant colors and a new approach to storytelling. Most importantly, while the size of the paper will change, we’ll continue to provide the same depth and breadth of news coverage you’ve come to expect from us.
This change is historic. It has been years in the making, and our readers and advertisers have been along every step of the way. Getting to this point required significant effort and expertise from employees across Enquirer Media, and I want to thank them publicly. I also want to thank our more than 742,000 readers who read The Enquirer each week and our advertisers for their patience. We’ve been as anxious as you are to unfold this new Enquirer.
This new format requires a complete transformation in printing technology. We all know new technology sometimes brings unexpected challenges. We’ll have teams ready to respond if we encounter issues, because meeting your needs is at the core of what we do.
We will celebrate day one – Monday, March 11 – by delivering the first edition to all of our subscribers, including weekend and Sunday-only customers. That Monday edition will include a guide to your new Enquirer and an introduction to the 150 journalists who work tirelessly to bring you the most up-to-date and in-depth news and information across the Tristate. We take seriously our responsibility as a news organization to preserve and protect freedom of the press, a core tenet of the U.S. Constitution. And we’re committed to serving the greater good of our local communities.
Readers across the community continually approach me, requesting we continue to publish a print newspaper. The new Enquirer is more efficient to produce, which allows us to do just that, helping us fulfill our mission of providing news and information that is relevant and actively supports the people and businesses of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. And don’t forget, your subscription also includes full access to all of our digital content as well. Cincinnati.com, NKY.com, all of our digital apps for your smartphone and tablet, like Reds and Things To Do, and our e-Newspaper come as a part of your Enquirer subscription. Be sure to take advantage of all your subscription includes by activating your digital account at Cincinnati.com/Activate.
Over the next two weeks, Carolyn Washburn, our editor, and I will keep you informed about planned changes and what you can expect from your new Enquirer. In the meantime, you can preview our current print prototype at Cincinnati Public Library branches and other local libraries or view it online at Cincinnati.com/newenquirer.
