A regional daily has pledged to give readers “better quality coverage” after relaunching.
The Citizen, Gloucester, has introduced the “fresh new look” after conducting a survey with readers, in which those who took part also asked for more local news in the paper’s pages.
The Citizen’s cover price remains at 75p following the relaunch, with the new look unveiled in last Monday’s edition, pictured below.
It comes as the newspaper prepares to mark its 140th anniversary later this year.
“We are rightly proud of all that has gone before but acutely aware of the need to constantly move with the times.
“As part of this, we conducted a survey with readers to determine what should feature in the Gloucester Citizen.
“They were not backward in coming forward to tell us they wanted more news about where they live and better quality coverage front to back in a newspaper which asks the right questions of the decision makers and demonstrates pride in the city.
“Well, we listened, and the new Gloucester Citizen for 2016 is packed full of more quality content and all wrapped up in a fresh new look, sitting proudly at the heart of Gloucester and surrounding areas.”
Earlier this month The Citizen shut its Gloucester office, with editorial staff now based 10 miles away at the headquarters of the Gloucestershire Echo, in Cheltenham.
