“As we frequently advocate to our advertisers and readers, we are getting more aggressive with our marketing in this slow economic environment with the goal of increased market awareness and strength as the economy rebounds. As part of this effort, we are introducing a complete redesign of our print product and our web site. The print product which debuted this week includes a completely fresh new look and feel, along with exciting additional editorial content and a move from comprehensive listings to more selected recommendations. A more robust and broad collection of listings will be available on our new website launching in the upcoming weeks.”

Jim Rizzi — Publisher

“With the launch in the Jan. 22 issue of our redesign, we hope to give readers a cleaner, updated and more organized look. We realize that much or our strength in the community depends on complete arts and entertainment listings and reviews, so we’ve added features to the Dining, Cinema and Music sections. We’re especially pleased to expand the ‘Essentials’ section — A&E events that our critics feel very strongly about recommending. ‘Essentials’ now includes weekend picks as well as weekday recommendations. Please let us know how you feel about the redesign by e-mailing to”

Holly Mullen — Editor

“My mission was to update the presentation of our content in print. We’ve added a greater amount of visual elements to draw in the reader. More pictures in Music Live and A & E Essentials that deliver a greater visual impact and interest.

It has been great to give our paper a fresh new look, but more importantly to add some very exciting new editorial content.”

Susan Kruithof — Art and Production Director
