Hello St. Joe Live readers! I usually reserve this space for my opinions on pop culture and all the happenings that drive it. But this time, I wanted to give the heads up on some changes we’ll be making in the new year.
As we head towards the last week of the year and decade, the St. Joseph News-Press editors and I decided it was time to change the look and feel of St. Joe Live. These changes will only apply to the physical publication and e-edition, not the individual stories online.
The big change is we will be switching from the 12-page tab format (kind of like a magazine) to a broadsheet (more in line with the folds and presentation of the rest of the newspaper). The decision was made for logistical purposes and to streamline the process of creating St. Joe Live on a weekly basis.
Page designer George Stanton and I made sure that the look of the new version of St. Joe Live will fit the aesthetic and loose, fun feel readers have known for the past decade. We’ll still have all of the latest stories and previews of the biggest events going on in the area and some activities that might have flown under the radar.
The only thing that will change in that regards to content is the entertainment calendar, which will be pared down to fit notable events and activities going on in the area that we weren’t able to cover.
Besides that, all of the content you read on a weekly basis in St. Joe Live, including this column, the movie reviews and entertainment features, will remain front and center.
Next week, we’ll be looking on the decade that was pop culture in St. Joseph and all of major highs we witnessed.
It’s been wonderful being a part of St. Joe Live‘s more than 10 years of delivering entertainment news to you. Your support is greatly appreciated. As we move forward in this new, upcoming format, I take great pleasure in continuing to do that.
Here’s to the new year!
