Following nearly 3 years of developing the bdaily news publication, it became apparent that some news stories and events from the region would benefit from more extended coverage than the skimmable style of the bdaily is able to offer.
In response to this, we created the bdaily Xtra which, as an extended publication, allows for more extensive reports on key regional figures, events and policies that are of interest to regional businesses.
While the bdaily strives to deliver quality news and events in quick, bite-sized reports and prides itself on remaining neutral; the bdaily Xtra has the capacity to explore, analyse and evoke response from the subject matter, allowing the editor to adopt a more investigative approach.
The format of the bdaily Xtra is one of an electronic magazine or paper, with movement required to scroll through it similar to that of ‘turning a page’.
The first three editions of this unique publication can be viewed below:
