The NST appears to be in the process of getting a makeover and the new look could be launched on that ‘auspicious’ date, 11 November 2011.
Have a look at the four-part series about the makeover on the Garcia Media blog.
Full-price sales at the NST have plunged to 70000 copies.
The question is, will this latest revamp be enough to stem the decline of the NST?
Personally, I think the problem of flagging sales is very much political. As long as the paper is perceived to be associated with Umno, that problem will in all likelihood persist.
