Paper’s new front-page to help guide readers

12:49 p.m Tuesday, March 29, 2016 Local

Today’s front page of the Dayton Daily News has a fresh new look designed to give readers what you have asked us for.

Recently we brought groups of readers together to ask them what you needed most from the paper and how to make it better. Today we are launching a new front page design that captures what readers said you wanted.

Easier to find important news: Now at the top and the bottom of the page there are large, clear descriptions of the most important stories from throughout the newspaper.

>> FROM THE ARCHIVES: 100 years of newspaper front pages

Continue giving us news helps us make important decisions in our lives: The stories we place on the front page will continue to be about topics you have told us affect your lives most directly. So we will anchor our newspaper around investigations into local tax spending; major changes to local jobs and employment; the most-important news of the day from around the country and the world; major issues that affect your family’s safety and news about major events that affect our largest local institutions like Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and major local institutions.

Local community news: We have reporters covering communities throughout the Dayton region. Now we’re going to label the stories more clearly so readers in Huber Heights, Dayton, Springboro or other communities can find the stories about where they live.

Weather is important: You told us loud and clear that you appreciate a quick, clear presentation of the day’s weather high on the page. This top item, with the latest information from the Stormcenter7 meteorologists, is more visible than ever before.

Throughout the paper you will continue to see the best local coverage of local news, sports, lifestyle, things to do, and entertainment. The local section will be clearer than ever about what is going on in your community.

These changes, which you helped bring about, help us continue our commitment to bringing you the best newspaper possible, every day.
