Launched in 1988, The New Paper has pioneered a style of journalism in Singapore that goes for sharp news angles. It puts a human face to Singapore stories and to complicated issues of the day. The New Paper is the second most-read English newspaper in Singapore after The Straits Times, with a huge following for its sports pages that provide strong sports coverage, especially in soccer news. The New Paper is also pioneering a different form of tabloid journalism by presenting complex issues in an easy-to-read, pop style for young and busy readers. It catches readers’ eyes with bold and colourful designs, exciting layouts and punch headlines. Now a big part of the Singapore scene, The New Paper strolled into the Guinness Book of World Records in 2000, when its annual mass-fitness event, The New Paper Big Walk, was recognised as the largest walk in the world.
