The Register Citizen (Conn.) has announced a new version of the Torrington daily will debut in two weeks, days before
Thanksgiving, according to an editorial today.
The Citizen will reallocate space in its news pages. More space will be
given to local news coverage, including photos. Readers will also see more space allotted for local opinion in both the print and web editions. The newspaper will also be more consistent with where readers can find local, state, national, and world news, according to publisher Matt DeRienzo.
On Thursdays, the Citizen will introduce an arts and entertainment weekly,
which will replace the TGIF section. On Sundays, the newspaper will expand its local events calendar and include local history and home and garden features.
The daily is even considering adopting a slogan. So far, the front-runner is
“Getting Better All The Time.”
Recently, the Citizen named a new editor, Jordan Fenster, and a new managing editor, Viktoria Sundqvist. The newspaper has already revamped its Web site, www.registercitizen.com, adding blogs, local photo galleries, and a story commenting system a few weeks ago.
