SYRACUSE — The Syracuse New Times plans to launch a redesign of the newspaper this week.
The revamp adopts a “modern, magazine-quality look and enhanced content,” the newspaper said in a news release.
The first edition with the new look will hit newsstands on Wednesday, April 2.
The Syracuse New Times, which says it is the nation’s “fourth-oldest alternative weekly,” is available in more than 1,100 locations throughout Central New York. It focuses on arts and entertainment, community events, news, sports, and politics.
“Our roots have been and will always be in the arts, but we also feel the community deserves to be better informed about the big issues and significant trends happening in Central New York. We are excited to expand and serve our readers at an even higher level,” William Brod, publisher, said in the release.
The Syracuse New Times plans to add reporting on topics such as fashion and the urban lifestyle, expand coverage of dining, and provide a more “prominent platform” for community members and their views.
In addition, the paper also includes features such as Jeff Kramer’s humor column, Ed Griffin-Nolan’s “Sanity Fair” opinion column, and odd news items in the News & Blues section.
