TNP: New look, new content, same DNA
While much seems to have changed, we have kept everything you love about us
Squint, rub your eyes, and look again. Yes, it's still us, The New Paper.
And from today, you can pick us up for free.
We may look different, but rest assured, our DNA has not changed - you, the reader, are still at the heart of everything we do.
We have designed the paper to be easy on your eyes and easy to navigate.
It is a design that, while being more elegant and compact, allows us to continue doing what we do best - visual storytelling.
We also know you lead a busy life, so we will give you as much of the news that you NEED to know in a way that's quick and easy to understand.
This means news about our economy, job market, property, personal finance and government policies and how they affect you.
We also have a new business section, where we monitor the ups and downs of the stock market, as well as developments in the corporate world.
If you are unable to pick us up for any reason, just reach for your smartphone or tablet.
Our revamped website is now mobile-responsive so you will get all our web content in an easy-to-read format no matter the device.
We also know you lead a busy life, so we will give you as much of the news that you NEED to know in a way that's
quick and easy to understand.
There is also a new app you can download (search for The New Paper) from today to read each edition as an e-paper.
While a lot seems to have changed - our design, content mix, website, and the fact that we are free - we have kept everything about TNP that our readers know and love.
We will still give you the best sports coverage in town, with news and views about the EPL, S. League and other major sports, both local and international.
On the lifestyle front, we will continue to give you the latest stories on movies, celebrities, fashion, travel, motorcycles, technology and food, with your favourite TNP writers such as Hedy Khoo, Yeoh Wee Teck, S M Ong and Zaihan Mohamed Yusof.
And we will continue to give you stories that will inspire you and tug at your heartstrings; stories about people overcoming challenges, coping with adversity and achieving things that may seem beyond the reach of the residents of this little red dot.
Our little newspaper started out in 1988, and for 28 years, we have been renewing ourselves each step of the way.
Today, The New Paper is new again.
Thank you for sticking with us.
