Making your York Sunday News Business Section even more local
This is an draft of the cover of the York Sunday News’ Business Section for Dec. 14, 2014. The section has been reorganized to showcase more local content.
The York Daily Record/Sunday News is part of Digital First Media.
But we continue to tweak, change and improve the key part of our non-digital lineup – our print product, the newspaper.
Day content editor Kate Harmon, in a column, explains some of the behind-the-scenes work that will become public on Sunday:
Today, you’ll notice a few small changes to your York Sunday News business section. It’s part of our ongoing efforts to give you, the reader, more local content on the issues you’ve requested.
We’ve already moved toward more local stories and less wire in the section, and tried to tackle more topics York County readers have mentioned.
We have two monthly columns from the York County Area Agency on Aging and York County Community Foundation, addressing those issues for York County’s aging population.
Vacation with YDR
Today, you’ll notice the Vacation with YDR photos and bus trip listings have moved to Living. That frees business up for a page full of what we’re calling “Office Life.”
Months ago, when I asked readers what they’d like to see, many of you expressed concern over reentering the workplace on a part-time basis. Some asked how older residents might be perceived and what may have changed in the workplace since their retirement.
It turns out that overall, attitudes toward York’s aging population are overall positive, as you’ll read from the Community Foundation’s recent survey a few pages back.
But that doesn’t mean you’re all ready to jump back into the workplace. Nor does it mean “Office Life” is just for those returning to the office post retirement.
Our “Office Life” content will help address some of the issues seen in the workplace — from how to deal with meddlesome co-workers to how to get people out of a conference room you’ve reserved.
You’ll also note today that wire content is being restricted to one page, barring the need for more space. That helps us identify national and international business stories of note, while giving you more of the best, local content we can.
As always, we’re open to feedback and ideas on how our business team can help you get your local news as we continue to strive to be the No. 1 source of news and information in York County.
