九龙图库彩色版 .Times Dreams Little Free Tabloid Project, Aims for Elusive Young


As The New York Times slowly works its way toward a narrower broadsheet in 2008, the paper has another new format in deve【2020一117期新版跑狗图 】lopment: a tabloid for the younger generation.On Dec. 15, executive editor Bill 【二四六正版通天报 资料 】Keller mentioned a tabloid “prototype” during one of his occasional “Throw Stuff at Bill” sessions for the staff, a combination state-of-the-paper address and Q&A free-for-all.“It’【天线宝宝心水论坛538 】s way too early to talk about it,” Mr. Keller wrote in an e-mail Dec. 18, when asked about the tabloid. “It’s one of many projects that are still in the noodling stage.”The subject arose during the middle of one of Mr. Keller’s three sessions on Dec. 15, in the paper’s ninth-floor auditorium, with publisher Arthur O. Su【2020新版跑狗图第六十三期 】lzberger Jr. and managing editors Jill Abramson and John Geddes in attendance. A staffer asked about local coverage, and Mr. Keller mentioned new or planned electronic products, plus a “possible print product” that would be “aimed at younger readers.”The noodling about the tabloid, according to a source familiar with the project, has been taking place in a Times committee that first convened this past April to generate ideas about marketing and boosting circulation. After a string of weekly meetings, the

group—which includes members from the paper’s editorial and business sides—has settled into a less rigid schedule.So far, the concepts emerging from the group suggest that Mr. Sulzberger’s “platform-agnostic” approach to packaging content is yielding something more like platform Unitarian Universalism—taking inspiration from whatever tradition is handy. The first of the comm

ittee’s ideas to re【2020年香港全年免费欲钱料 】ach the public was Urbanite, a daily e-mail news【今期最新跑狗图卜 】letter launched Nov. 3, listing goings-on around the city.Because a Baltimore-based magazine named Urbanite already existed, on Dec. 15 The Times redubbed the newsletter UrbanEye. A Times spokesperson wrote

via e-mail that the company “felt we should create and trademark a n【极限二中一平特肖 】ame that would be exclusive and distinctive to The Times.”The tabloid idea hasn’t reached the naming stage, let alone the renaming stage. The source familiar with t【2020年老版跑狗图94期 】he project described its condition as more a collection of loose pages than a full prototype. In the q【跑狗图一字记之曰颠 】uestion-and-answer session, Mr. Keller said that the new publication could be distributed either inside the paper or on its own.Whatever form the new project takes, there are plenty of pre【香港赛马会9979 】c【抓码王彩图2014年 】edents for a broadsheet spinning off a tabloid. The Times itself【曾道道人原创 】 launched a free publication, MarketPlace Weekly, in June 2【马报145起老筋急转弯全集笑话 】005. It was a drab creation—consisting mostly of classified ads and articles taken from the regular paper’s real-estate, jobs and automotive sections—and it got a drab reception. It was killed without fanfare, announced during a Times Company second-quarter conference call this past July.Other broadsheet dailies have had zippier ambitions for their tabloids in recent years. The Chicago Tribune and Sun-Times went head to head in 2002 with youth-targeted titles called RedEye and Red Streak, respectively (Red Streak shut down at the end of 2005). The papers packaged the news in short bits, tuned to their target audience’s expected attention span. The Washington Post did the same with a commuter-targeted tabloid called Express.There’s always a new way to distribute Sudoku!But the proposed Times tabloid would not go head to head with amNewYork or Metro on the stai【如水的鱼打一生肖 】rways to the No. 1 train. The idea is for it to be more like 【2020年跑狗图079期 】a hard-copy relative of UrbanEye than an easy-read news digest. It would be a weekly, heavy on event listings—like The Village Voice, or the New York Press, or Tim【马会二边开发财诗 】e Out New York or New York magazine or the front end of The New Yorker, for that matter.The tabloid will need at least an【老奇人免费开奖结果 】other six months to get off the drawing board, the Ti【2017年第87期跑狗图 】mes source said. Meanwhile, the committee will stay

busy with another outlet for the paper’s newly New York–centered ambitions: a Web site that would gather together city-related stories from various parts of the newspaper, such as the metro and culture desks, and integrate them with service features.

There’s nothing going on.”Weeks later, Mr. Peretz sold two-thirds of the magazine to financiers Roger Hertog and Michael Steinhardt.Mr. Steinhardt and Mr. Hertog, both investors in the right-leaning New York Sun, had their politic【2020期072期老跑狗 】s placed under a microscope after they bought part of the perpetually rightward-tacking liberal magazine.
