The Sun Herald has added back pages to the newspaper. Here's what else is planned.
In response to feedback from readers, the Sun Herald of Gulfport, Miss., is adding back pages to the newspaper.
In a recent column to readers, Executive Editor and General Manager Blake Kaplan said that a task force of newsroom personnel, marketing executives and circulation leaders surveyed and interviewed readers. Then the group talked about what they learned.
"Rarely was the feedback about the quality of journalism the Sun Herald produces," Kaplan wrote. "The biggest issue we heard was that readers wanted back things we had taken away over the years as we moved news and information from the paper to our website.
"So I am happy to announce that we have added more pages back to the newspaper. It will vary by day, but there's one exciting bonus: No more one-section papers."
Among the things that have been added back: the "Dear Annie" advice column and the crossword puzzles from Eugene Sheffer and Thomas Joseph.
He said the paper also will print more news, "the foundation of our business."
