Day change for 'fresher' Isle of Man newspaper

Related Stories

Isle of Man newspapers is to change its day of publication, as part of plans to provide "fresher" coverage.

A spokesman said from 4 February, the Examiner will be available on Tuesday mornings instead of Mondays.

The changes come after customer research showing a preference for "a better, fresher paper" a day later.

Editor, Richard Butt said: "Currently, to be in the shops first thing on Monday morning means the deadline is on a Sunday night."

He added: "The problem with a Sunday deadline is that many of sources of news or comments on news - be they companies, charities, police officers, civil servants or politicians - are simply much harder to get hold of on a Sunday. So, occasionally, the news we've been able to report in the Examiner has been less complete than we'd like."

Isle of Man Newspapers publishes three weekly newspapers, the Isle of Man Examiner, the Isle of Man Courier and the Manx Independent.

The company, which is owned by Johnston Press is based in Douglas.
