The New Year’s bringing with it lots of new looks it seems. The Manchester Evening News is expected to reveal a new look website later this week and yesterday saw the new look print edition of the Yorkshire Evening Post hit the streets.
Not too much has changed – we still aim to deliver the best news and sports coverage around – but there are now even more reasons to enjoy your YEP.
As well as an array of new sections and features, there will be a special daily pull-out covering everything from fashion to football, as well as the city’s best entertainment guide.
One of the main aims behind this revamp is to make the paper more interactive, with readers’ views, photographs and stories playing a bigger role than ever before. We want to hear your views; after all, it is your paper for our city.
Hard to know how it’s been received as there are currently no comments posted – what do you think of the changes?
