P. 1300 276 778 • E. firstname.lastname@example.org • W. apnprint.com.au The PANPA Bulletin | MARCH 2012 | 3 no more today tonight STAFF have been given the choice of whether to switch New Zealand’s largest regional from an afternoon to a morning newspaper. Colleagues gave the green-light for APN News & Media’s Hawke’s Bay To- day to move its weekday paper to the new publishing time from March 19. Its Saturday edition has published in the morning for more than a decade. Staff consultation was a critical part of the decision-making proc- ess, said APN New Zealand’s Rick Neville. He had been confident staff would favour the move. “The morning cycle suits a lot of the things we’re doing, including ex- panding our online presence,” said Mr Neville, who is regional editor- in-chief and chief operating officer. “It gets tricky breaking news each morning on the website and then giving readers something new in print in the afternoon.” Hawke’s Bay Today is following a trend in New Zealand for the main- stream regionals to switch to morn- ing editions. Many of them remain broadsheets – and that is another change to the market that will likely occur in the next five years as the industry con- tinues to modernise. Editor Antony Phillips confessed the change at Hawke’s Bay Today was overdue but part of his own three- year plan for the paper. “For more than a decade, staff have speculated about it and so has the community,” he said. “We’re now a quasi-morning pa- per anyway. Much of the newspaper is already produced for mornings. “We have had an interrupted news-cycle. “We don’t have as much time for planning and often design decisions are made on the fly. It’s busy and buzzy but it doesn’t translate to a better newspaper.” APN’s chief executive, Brett Che- noweth, visited the paper earlier this year and expressed support for the switch. He talked to staff about the need to challenge themselves. “Colleagues responded very well to that,” Mr Phillips said. Any resistance to the change would have made management pause, Mr Phillips said. “If there were a crescendo of no’s, any newspaper would have to look at that. But that is not the way it has turned out,” he continued. “In an Australian context, this probably sounds funny because so many of their papers made the switch years ago. “In New Zealand there are good reasons to go slow. We do have a lot of older, conservative readers who like reading their paper of an after- noon. They like their routine. “We have to take our readers’ con- cerns into account.” The changes come as Mr Phillips prepares to hand over the reins to a new editor Andrew Austin after three years. He said making good on a decade- old plan to make the newspaper a morning publication would be his “last hurrah” as editor.

Straits Times editor han fook Kwang said: “We want this to be a fun way to encourage students to read more . . . and we look forward to crowning sin- gapore’s champion speller in The Straits Times.” The paper’s weekly magazine for primary school students, little red dot, has been running a series on tips for spelling quirky words. “ The sponsorship is a breakthrough for our newspapers-in-education program,” little red dot editor serene Goh told The Bulletin. “it would be easy to think that spell-check func- tions have done away with the need for young read- ers to understand how words come together. “Quite the opposite is true. our event promotes a love of the english language and an appreciation of its cultural mix.” she said she wanted to encourage children to learn to read, and then read to learn. “That principle is timeless,” she said. “it applies in the digital or any other age. “That’s the key to creating life-long readers. “That’s when the magic happens.” Sophie Tarr, NPA Children get ready for the national spelling championships, supported by singapore press holdings piCTure: seah Kwang peng, The straits Times THIS will be the last edition of The Bulletin under the banner of the Newspaper Publishers’ Association and PANPA. After our publishing deadline, members of the Association were to vote on three recommendations of the Board that would result in the amalgamation with an allied industry group, The Newspaper Works. If passed, it will end a near 40-year era in which PANPA – the Pacific Area Newspaper Publishers’ Association – has been the fore- most pan-industry group in the region. It has members across Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, plus North- and South-East Asia, such as Singa- pore Press Holdings. Many of the core activities of the Asso- ciation will be continued by The Newspaper Works and these will continue to carry the PANPA brand. Proof of this is the current 2012 Ad Awards, that were launched in early Febru- ary and will be presented after the proposed amalgamation. The annual conference, the Newspaper of the Year awards and the weekly newsletter will also continue. The chief executive will be the current head of The Newspaper Works, Tony Hale, whose organisation currently conducts re- search and marketing initiatives designed to support the purchase of print advertising, predominantly by ad agencies, for newspa- pers in Australia. The responsibilities of two other groups – the Publishers’ National Environment Bu- reau and the Publishers’ Advertising Advi- sory Bureau – will also be embraced by The Newspaper Works. “The new group will be better placed to consolidate and enhance services designed to improve the quality and commercial suc- cess of the industry,” said outgoing CEO of PANPA, Mark Hollands. “Having led the Association for almost four years, I am enormously grateful for the support of so many people who have helped re-build the Association,” he said.
