The Chieftain to take on a new look

September 24, 2014

Next week, you will notice a change in the format and design of your newspaper.

On Oct. 2, The Chieftain will receive an updated design and transition from a tabloid to a broadsheet format. The new newspaper will be printed on newsprint that is 23 inches tall by 11 inches wide. The new size gives us the opportunity to offer our readers a fresh, new look with larger space to display photos and stories. Also, the redesigned newspaper means The Chieftain will now be the same size and format as the World Company’s other newspapers, including the Shawnee Dispatch, the Tonganoxie Mirror, the Baldwin City Signal and the Lawrence Journal-World.

The staff at The Chieftain looks forward to bringing you a great newspaper. If you have questions or comments about the new format, please contact Michelle Tevis at or 785-832-7255, or Chieftain news editor Caroline Boyer at or 913-232-6511.

Thanks for reading!
