New York Observer to Get Wordier with Redesign

Tomorrow the New York Observer is launching a redesign, and according to Elizabeth Spiers, it’s going to put the focus on lengthy pieces. She tells The Cutline that the new look paper and website will feature plenty of long stories:

The new design does little to distinguish between long form features that appear in the paper and long-form web exclusives, which we’ll be doing far more of–meaning more long-form altogether, and no assuming that if something runs longer than 500 words, it can only run affixed to a slice of dead tree.

She adds that although there will be long stories on the site, there will be plenty of room in the new system for breaking news.

Apparently there’s going to be something for everyone, so no one complain about it okay? Well, aside from us, that is. It’s our job to complain about trivial media stuff.

You can check out the new version of the paper tomorrow morning.
