A new era for your Evening News

Your Evening News is changing the time it prints every day but, rest assured, will still be filled with the most comprehensive news and analysis of what's going on in Norwich.

The changes start in the week beginning February 28, when the Evening News will be printed at about midnight every day.

There are a number of reasons why we are making the change.

One is because the way you demand news has changed with the introduction of the internet and 24-hour news channels on TV and radio.

Long gone are the days when the first way to find out about breaking news was when the Evening News rolled off the presses. For the past decade the majority of the newspaper has been written the day before publication anyway, so our website at www.eveningnews24.co.uk is the place to go for breaking news, with the newspaper being a more comprehensive roundup of local news not offered anywhere else.

Another reason is that the economy is still suffering and we need to save money to ensure our frontline journalism is maintained for readers. Printing earlier helps us do that.

Ultimately, what is in the Evening News will not change.
