Rock River Times Gets a New Look

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- After more than two decades, a local newspaper is changing its look.

The Rock River Times is switching up how you flip through its pages. The print edition is on newsstands as a half-fold tabloid newspaper, similar to the Chicago Sun Times and New York Post. But the paper's editor Frank Schier says his pages don't read like a typical newspaper.

"It's more of a magazine format and you'd be surprised on how many times people have referred to this newspaper to me personally as a magazine. I think that we write to that quality and I wanted to attain the actual physical package." Schier said.

The Rock River Times plans to unveil its new electronic daily edition in early February.
