Two sister dailies have relaunched on the same day with changes made to the design and content of both titles.
As part of the relaunch, the EDP is introducing new sections each day between Monday and Friday – Life & style, Health & Wellbeing, Eat Norfolk, Arts & Culture and Family.
Readers are also being asked to give their ideas on how the Archant-owned papers can be improved.
In a message to EDP readers, David Powles, who edits both titles, said: “In its 145-year history this newspaper has proudly served the people of Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, fighting for its communities, highlighting wrongdoing and scrutinising the public sector.
“Through our coverage of local news, sport, business and events, we’ve been there to share in people’s high points and provide comfort during the low ones.
“Hopefully we have informed and influenced, made you laugh and made you cry. All of this will continue far beyond when I decide to retire and move to a quaint spot on our wonderful coast. There is, however, always room for improvement and from today we embark on an exciting phase in our history. We are making changes to the newspaper, both in terms of the way it looks and its daily content.
“We will, of course, still give you unrivalled news, sport and business coverage, whether it’s from around the corner, or from the other side of the world. But starting today, we’ll also bring you even more. More news, more views, more analysis and a great new section every day, from Monday to Saturday.”
The EDP’s cover price remains at 90p, while the NEN’s stays at 75p.
David told HTFP: “In 2017 we have exciting plans about how we will further improve our digital content for an ever growing online audience.
“But we do not believe print is dead. We believe our titles are worth fighting for, caring about and devoting time and effort to. That’s what today’s fresh approach is about.”
