Changes at New Zealand Herald

10:27 AM, 26 July 2012

APN New Zealand Media has confirmed that the weekday New Zealand Herald will be moving to a compact format in September 2012 in conjunction with a redesign of its website nzherald.co.nz.  

This is a major change for New Zealand’s largest circulation daily newspaper, but reflects an international trend to compact formats.

Ahead of the launch in September, APN has committed to consult widely with advertisers and other stakeholders to test design concepts, new content development and integration with existing digital platforms. Readership and engagement measures following the relaunch will be closely watched by advertisers. An announcement concerning advertising costs for the new format are expected imminently.

The Weekend Herald will remain in its present broadsheet format,  a layout that is considered more suitable to weekend readership.
