MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 19, 2011--
Gannett Co., Inc. (NYSE: GCI) reached an agreement with The Columbus
Dispatch to print The Cincinnati Enquirer and The Kentucky Enquirer in a
new, easy-to-use format beginning the fourth quarter of 2012.
“Our readers will find format and graphic changes, including fuller use
of color and photographs, a more compact and easy-to-handle size, bolder
section fronts and inside pages that are easier to navigate. Content
will provide more in-depth coverage of topics that our readers are
passionate about and provide information that can’t be found anywhere
else,” said Margaret Buchanan, president and publisher of The Cincinnati
Enquirer. “We are able to enhance efficiency while at the same time
provide consumers with the bold new product they prefer. For local
businesses who advertise in The Enquirer, it’s a reinvented print medium
designed for more impact.”
The Columbus Dispatch will be the first newspaper in the world to print
in this new format. The format provides such advantages as the ability
to print multiple sections, allowing readers to gravitate to their areas
of interest easily and quickly; added color flexibility for advertisers;
and an enhanced reader experience. Dimensions of the newly formatted
Enquirer will be 10 ½ inches by 14 2/3 inches – and current
content in The Enquirer will remain in the redesigned newspaper. As part
of this initiative, The Enquirer’s production facility will close fourth
quarter, 2012, as printing transitions to Columbus.
