Newspaper readers across some southern Eastern Carolina counties are seeing the new paper format for the first time.

The new format for the New Bern Sun Journal, Jacksonville Daily News, and the Kinston Free Press, which was supposed to begin Monday but was delayed was unveiled Tuesday.

Parent company freedom papers say it was designed to make reading easier and to increase emphasis on local content.

The most obvious difference is the size of the newspaper and readers have mixed feelings.

The newspapers will now be organized more like magazines.

    I saw the Kinston Free Press yesterday and it looks like a tabloid paper. It certainly didn't increase my respect anymore.
