Detroit, Mich. — September 7, 2004 — For a quarter of a century, Metro Times has been Detroit’s weekly alternative for news, arts, culture, music, film, food and more. Hard-hitting journalism, in-depth profiles of local artists, musicians, and cultural icons, and the area’s most comprehensive club and concert listings have made it the news and entertainment resource for metro Detroiters.
So, why change a good thing? To make it even better. We did a little research to find out how people digest their news, peruse their interests and pursue their entertainment quests — both visually and intellectually. What we came up with is represented in Metro Times new look and feel. (Some have even mentioned that it tastes better, too!)
The new Metro Times features striking cover art, quick reads that provide clever and relevant information in seconds, heaps of listings, along with in-depth coverage of local issues and more. Our interactive layout offers readers various points of entry into mainstay sections such as News Hits, Music, Arts & Culture, Cinema, Taste, Classifieds and Night & Day. Revamped page headers direct readers to similar content throughout the paper.
And did we mention the size? It’s handier. It feels better. See for yourself. Check out the new look when Metro Times hits newsstands Wednesday, Sept. 15.
