State-Journal launches redesign on Saturday

From The State Journal

The State Journal will get a makeover as well when the redesign is launched.

The State Journal on Saturday will launch a dynamic, clean redesign — its first in more than a decade.

The redesign comes after months of work and places a priority on providing well-balanced coverage of Frankfort and Franklin County in a time when newsprint — the paper that the newspaper is printed on — is getting more expensive and in shorter supply. New features in the redesign will include a daily calendar of events on page A2; dedicated space for state, national and world news items; an additional daily commentary column on the opinion page; a daily sports feature called “Sideline,” which will combine the TV calendar, local sports schedules and scores, and a photograph of local athletes; a “5 Things to Do” feature on the Friday Spectrum page; and a combined Spectrum and Opinion section in the weekend edition.

“Frankfort and Franklin County deserve a newspaper that strives to continuously innovate, and our redesign attempts to maintain its laser focus on local news in a time when newspapers are coping with challenges such as tariffs on newsprint and increased costs elsewhere in our business,” said Managing Editor Josh Bergeron.
