SINGAPORE, September 23, 2005 - Newspaper readers are in for more choices. Shin Min Daily News, the evening Chinese newspaper published by Singapore Press Holdings, is producing four issues of special morning edition, starting from Sept 27, Tuesday.
The four issues will be published over a period of about two months. The compact-sized morning edition will be packed with pleasant surprises for readers. From content to style, it will be distinctly different from the existing evening broadsheet edition while retaining the latter´s strengths.
That means the morning edition will still have the latest breaking news, social issues that matter, useful consumer tips and a lifestyle guide. In addition, it is designed to be a morning newspaper that keeps pace with urbanites, giving them another window to the news and up-to-date information pulsating through the city.
Shin Min Daily News special morning editions are available from newsstands on Sept 27 (Tue), Oct 12 (Wed), Oct 27 (Thu) and Nov 12 (Sat) for 70 cents each. The morning edition will not affect or modify the evening edition, which will be out daily as usual on every evening. Shin Min readers can now wake up to the morning edition and wind down with the evening edition.
