The ‘Now’ welcomes new publisher, focuses on more powerful Thursday edition

SURREY — We are proud to announce some exciting new changes.

Firstly, the Now would like to welcome our new group publisher Dwayne Weidendorf.

Dwayne was formerly the publisher of the Langley Times, a position he has held since November, 2006. Prior to that, he was publisher of four Ontario community newspapers.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank former publisher Gary Hollick for his many years of service to both the Now and the community of Surrey.

We are now a proud Black Press publication and we look forward to a long and exciting life with our new family at Black Press.

Starting next week, the Now will be a weekly publication. Our team will be focusing all our efforts on making our new and improved Thursday edition a more comprehensive package of news, advertising and community events than ever before.

What this means for readers and advertisers is a more powerful, impactful newspaper at your doors and businesses.

We will be able to better focus on the people in our community and showcase the positive things they are doing to make this a better place to live, work and play.

In the next few weeks and months, you can expect to read more compelling and in-depth features about people and issues that matter to you.

You will see more photos from community events, more stories about interesting and successful small business ventures and more feedback from readers in our Debate section.

And, of course, throughout the week, we will continue to deliver breaking news as it happens right here on our website and on Facebook and Twitter.

We are excited about theses changes and are looking forward to doing even more to showcase the people of our community who are making a difference.

As always, if you have any suggestions for us as we move into our exciting new chapter, please send them to us at or stop by and talk to us in our Newton office.
