Scott Underwood: More color, new sections coming to THB

Beginning Thursday, you’ll notice some colorful changes in the print edition of The Herald Bulletin. For the first time in the 145-year history of Anderson newspapers, most days of the week will feature full color on every page.

In the past, we’ve given you color on certain pages day after day, such as the front page of the paper, the Sports cover and our People/Weather/TV page. Now, we’ll be adding full color on other pages, as well. We think you’ll notice the difference, particularly, on the Obituary, Commentary, Comics, Local & State and Nation & World pages.

In addition, we will be partially rearranging the newspaper to give you four sections instead of two most days of the week. Adding to the main news (A) section and the Sports section, we’ll introduce a daily themed features section and a Business/Classifieds section.

The themes for the daily features section will be Education (Mondays), Health (Tuesdays), Food (Wednesdays), Neighbors (Thursdays), Entertainment (Fridays), Faith (Saturdays) and Community (Sundays). These themes are well known to fans of our current feature page lineup — the difference is that they will now have their own section, instead of taking up just a page in another section.

While many newspaper readers are creatures of habit and might view any sort of alteration with a jaundiced eye, we believe these changes will be easy to adjust to and will soon seem familiar to our subscribers and others who make The Herald Bulletin an important part of their day.

Look for our new full-color print editions and new four-section lineup beginning Thursday. And, as always, don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions, concerns or ideas for making the newspaper more useful and appealing.
