NZ Herald confirms new compact size

The New Zealand Herald is moving to a smaller format

It's been confirmed that the New Zealand Herald, the country's biggest newspaper, will move to a more compact format from September.

The change in format for the weekday newspaper was announced on Monday.

"We've been testing the concept with our readers and had excellent feedback that demonstrates a clear demand for a weekday compact," APN New Zealand Media chief executive Martin Simons said in a statement.

Saturday's Weekend Herald will remain as a broadsheet. The Herald on Sunday is already a compact.

Details about the launch date are expected to be announced soon.
