The Caymanian Compass newspaper made a commitment after the passage of Hurricane Ivan to offer its readers today’s news today.
Now that mission has been carried over to the newspaper’s website, Caycompass.com
‘We’ve been able to offer today’s news today in more than one instance through our print product’ said Publisher Brian Uzzell. ‘It is refreshing to know that we are capable of providing the most relevant information to our readers and advertisers in a timely fashion both in print and now on the Internet.’
The Caymanian Compass continues to be the only daily newspaper printed in the Cayman Islands. Since the website went up 10 December, there have been more than 2 million hits. Now the website will offer the entire world today’s news today from the Cayman Islands.
Mr. Uzzell said everyone on his staff agreed to commit to make the newspaper better following the passage of Hurricane Ivan. The same commitment has been applied to the website.
Today’s news today was made possible by going to the afternoon format with the newspaper, which allows it to be on the streets by 3pm daily with fresh news. Before the schedule change the day’s newspaper was being printed the prior day, i.e., Tuesday’s paper was being produced Monday.
The website will reflect the afternoon publication of the paper product. The website will be updated daily each afternoon with fresh news.
‘The teamwork that is going into producing a timely newspaper and website for our loyal readers and advertisers has been phenomenal,’ said Mr. Uzzell. ‘There is a commitment across the board to make the Compass better and stronger and share that with the world at large.’
