More than just a new look

The Libertyville Review you hold in your hands today is a re-imagining of what a local newspaper should provide for the community it serves.
For the past six months — through focus groups, hundreds of street interviews and direct contact with our readers — we have been in an open dialogue with our readers in an attempt to create the best possible local news experience for you.
The format and design that we unveiled today is born of those conversations, and intended to better reflect the vibrancy of your hometown.
Start your reading experience with the Inside Guide on Page 4 — a deep index that will allow you to easily find the content that you want to read first.
In the Inside Guide, you will see that the newspaper has been created in subject areas, so that you can easily move from topic to topic and quickly find what you are looking for through a color-coded approach to chaptering.
Please make sure that you spend some time with our new pullout Go section — your guide to the local and regional events that are happening this weekend and in the weeks ahead. Go takes the best parts of our former Diversions section and offers enhanced features and content in a section that’s convenient to carry along.
Packed with ideas and suggestions about where to have fun, Go provides the scoop on the latest movie releases, concerts and plays. But it also features a newly conceived approach to the calendar with an age-appropriate key that will help you find an event for everyone in the family.
In the weeks ahead, I’ll be back to point out more of the features. We hope you like what you see. And, as always, we value your feedback.
Sincerely, Chris Krug, Publisher
