Readers have their say on new-look Daily Mercury
HAVING read the Daily Mercury just about every day for more than 50 years, Tim Mulherin knows the look and feel of the newspaper like the back of his hand.
So when the Daily Mercury launched in a new, more compact format on Wednesday, Mr Mulherin was a good judge of the refreshed product.
“I think it is much more manageable,” he said.
“I’ve been reading the Daily Mercury since I was eight years old, so in excess of 50 odd years.
“I like the layout, it’s easy to read, its manageable, you’ve still got all the same old local content, which is important being a regional newspaper.
“First and foremost it’s about our local community and that’s what it always should be about.”
Harrup Park Country Club general manager Matt Cielens also enjoyed the new look and feel – particulary the sports section.
“I think it’s great, it seems to be very user friendly and it presents well,” he said.
“It’s a great format, the sports section will no doubt thrive with all the local content, from AFL to cricket and hopefully some exciting upcoming opportunities at Harrup Park.”
