Raleigh News and Observer Changes to 44" web
On Monday, August 17, The News & Observer and its network of nine community papers will convert to a 44" web width. This slightly narrower format is in line with changes taking place with many newspapers throughout the country. Readers in those markets have enjoyed a more convenient size newspaper, and the newsprint savings will help maintain our continued commitment to coverage of local news. All sections of our paper will be based on a six-column format.
