Redesigns and open houses

leave a comment »

I want to let you know about – and invite you to – two open houses we’ll be having this month. Both open houses will be from 6 to 8 p.m. The first open house, on Thursday, Oct. 22., will be at the new La Cañada Valley Sun offices, 727 Foothill Blvd. in La Cañada Flintridge. The second, on Thursday, Oct. 29, will be at the Glendale News-Press and Burbank Leader offices, 221 N. Brand Blvd, 2nd floor in Glendale.

The reason for the event is two-fold. First, though I’ve been in the editor’s chair for a little more than six month now, I have yet to meet many of you. Reporters and editors will be on hand to meet you and answer your questions. Food and beverages will be provided.

Second, we’re going to be presenting mockups of a significant redesign of all three papers. We’ve updated our fonts, expanded our police blotter, and added numerous graphical elements to give the paper a more modern and newsy feel. And, to allay any fears: Content is in no way being reduced. In many ways, it is being expanded.

In addition, we’re changing the size of The Valley Sun. On Nov. 4, it will grow to a broadsheet, allowing for more news and features to be on the front page. The redesigns of the News-Press and Leader will launch on Nov. 2 and 3, respectively.

I hope to see you there!
