SLICK, quality and ‘like a national newspaper’ were just some of the words you used to describe your new look Reporter.

Last week we launched our fresh new look with extra entertainment pages, in-depth news features and a dedicated junior sport section.

Asif Farooqui wrote on our Facebook page: “Woah! Looks a lot slicker I must say. The design, layout, font etc is just like a quality daily national. Good work!”

And Christine Sykes emailed us to simply say, “I like the new look.”

Reporter Series editor Hannah Ridgeway said: “Thank you to all those who have commented on our new-look paper on Facebook, Twitter, by text, email and letter. We have had some really positive and very encouraging responses to our relaunched paper and some constructive criticism which we will take on board too. We wanted not only to make the look of the paper cleaner and fresher, but to bring added value to readers and our advertisers.

“That’s why, whether you are a regular reader, an occasional reader or someone who has picked up a copy for the first time, we hope you have found plenty to enjoy.

“We’ve introduced a weekly news background feature to give scope to look behind the headlines at a story, or an issue. We added extra pages and a complete redesign to our entertainments guide. As well as your regular, favourite features, we’ve made the listings easier to find and use and added a full page of puzzles and a neat weekend TV guide.

“The weather was against us for sport, but we expect that in West Yorkshire in winter! This week we have included an eight-page Rugby League pre-season pull-out to whet your appetite for the games ahead. And we have a dedicated double page spread for junior sport every week.

“Please keep sending us your comments on the new look and most importantly keep telling us about the news that matters to you. We’re a weekly paper, but our online coverage is hour by hour, so keep up to date with the very latest news, sport, offers, travel, weather and much more online. This is my chance to say a big thank you to our readers and advertisers for your custom.”
