If you’re reading this, you might have noticed something, well, different. That is the News Progress’s hope anyway, as this week they rolled out a completely new look to both their print and web editions.
“We’re really excited for our readers,” said Managing Editor Keith Stewart.
Nearly six months in the making, the redesign was first considered by Stewart when he first arrived back in August of 2011.

I’m a big serif fan, especially for headlines and mastheads. Having a sans serif font just never appealed to me, and I didn’t feel like it commanded the reader’s attention.”
Not in the position to make those changes, however, Stewart put the idea aside until he was made managing editor in February 2012.
“It was an overwhelming period stepping into those shoes,” he admitted. “But I’d be lying if I said the redesign didn’t immediately pop back into my mind. I knew then that I wanted to, in time, make it happen.”
