Jacob Owens, the editor of the Delaware Business Times, writes about its redesign, which includes shorter news stories.
Owens writes, “For print, we set out with the goal of creating a product that was comprehensive, easy to read and dedicated to business in Delaware. My goal was to create a newspaper that could be read cover-to-cover in about an hour if a reader so chose.
“So, we have shortened stories and created info boxes and graphs to help quickly tell the stories for readers. Rest assured, while the print versions may be a quicker read, the lengthier versions of stories with more context, background, and insights that many readers have come to appreciate will continue to be posted online.
“Our spotlight coverage of the various industries in Delaware will continue, changing in each of our 24 editions a year, and our cover stories will continue to have a larger, magazine-like presentation at the center of our paper. DBT-researched industry lists, business leads, event calendar, and personnel changes and career achievements will also continue to be a part of the newly designed print edition.”
