We received a note from our paper delivery person that our Sunday edition of the would be delivered in two parts. The Ads, Comics, and Features would be delivered on Saturday Evening while the News would be delivered Sunday morning.
I’m not sure if this is the new norm (which would sound like a waste of resources) or just some weird one-off situation. It did get me thinking…
|Comparing content (right) to ads (left) in the Sunday edition of the Houston Chronicle.|
When comparing the size of the ads to that of the news and features, it did make me think that a paper magazine style for the Chronicle would be cool compared to the current standard newspaper layout. It would definitely be easier to handle than the full-size layout a newspaper currently uses.
(It also made me kind of sad seeing how small a newspaper has gotten.)
Just a random thought.
