We’ve added reporters to our local news beats in the region. So when you open the paper, you’ll see more stories from the places you live, written by some of America’s best reporters.

More From The Blogosphere More Business. More Focus.

More Up Front Check out the new content on Pages A2 and A3. Enjoy a new daily look at how we live, current trends, and the water-cooler topics you crave. And you’ll also see more informational graphics that illuminate life in intriguing and incisive ways.

The Business section has been thoroughly upgraded for these times. Each day you’ll see a new business theme deeply explored, from Consumer Technology to Small Business, from Personal Finance to Real Estate.

Don’t have time to digest everything online? We bring you in print daily downloads from our writers’ online discussions and diatribes, on topics from politics to health and finding a job and more.

More Of Us. More Of You. Every day the first section will have more original Inquirer stories, about more things related to you than ever. It’s award-winning coverage you just can’t get anywhere else. But our National and World coverage is still there – in a new home, just a few pages back.

All this and more delivered right to your home. Life today changes fast. A newspaper that doesn’t change isn’t serving you. The Inquirer has new sections, new pages, new content ... new ways of delivering the information you told us you want. This is more than window-dressing. We’re redeploying writers, bridging the gap between online and print, reframing the conversation and, we hope, giving you even more reasons to pick up The Inquirer every day. So if you already subscribe, congratulations. And if you don’t ... what are you waiting for?

Great changes are coming to your Inquirer. Read this special wrap to learn all about them.

Starting tomorrow, you’ll see many enhancements to The Inquirer. But while we set out to make a great newspaper greater, there’s one thing that doesn’t change — our commitment to deliver the news accurately, to bring clarity to complex issues and to serve as a watchdog for justice and fairness for all. Look what’s coming.

Tomorrow, a lot changes ... but nothing changes

Welcome to a better Inquirer. We’re changing a lot. And nothing.

Announcing a better Inquirer A few months ago, the new owners of The Philadelphia Inquirer bestowed a great distinction on me by naming me its editor. It is an enormous honor to lead a newspaper that has been a vibrant voice for this city and our region since 1829.

Welcome To A New Inquirer Starting tomorrow, you’ll see a lot of improvements to your Inquirer. We’re improving the first section of the paper with a sharper focus on politics, health care, education and other critical issues, and

As the new Editor, I promise that The Inquirer will continue delivering the news accurately, bringing clarity to complex issues, serving as a watchdog for justice and fairness to all citizens of our area, and celebrating the successes of those individuals and groups working to make Philadelphia an even greater city. Our news team is committed to providing a comprehensive report of local news, features, and opinion from the city and the region, while maintaining our coverage of issues of the nation and the world.
