Poland: New daily will be "newspaper of the center"

The new newspaper expected to be launched by publisher Agora SA in Poland this autumn will not be a "down-market tabloid" as announced earlier (see former posting). "Representatives of the company's board declared that the new daily will not be a tabloid but a 'newspaper of the center' ", reports the Warsaw Business Journal. Representatives also stated that the new daily is not going to compete with existing papers. The new paper, whose name is still unknown, is said to be an original project of Agora SA and not copied from any foreign or national newspaper. Jerzy Wójcik, former chief editor of the Polish free paper Metro, that is also published by Agora, will be the editor-in-chief of the new paper.
