Focus on Healthcare, Environment, Sustainability and Insurance

The Monday edition of Caymanian Times newspaper returns to the newsstands from Monday April 8th marking another significant step in the paper’s post-COVID revitalisation.

This Monday edition will follow a new themed content series which the paper will be rolling out across the Monday, Wednesday and Friday editions.

Mondays newspaper will shine the spotlight on Healthcare, Environment, Sustainability and Insurance with specially prepared content from the major industry providers. The latter is a response to the recent industry-shifting developments in the insurance sector driven by the policy decision to expand the offerings of the government-owned Cayman Islands National Insurance Company (CINICO) from healthcare into other areas. Other editions across the week will address employment, Tourism and Finance.

The latest step in this media journey,  also reflects another phase in the continuing evolution of the local newspaper which publisher Ralph Lewis describes as “at the end of the day, we want to be part of the community. This new Monday edition will demonstrate this commitment as we grow.”

With Caymanian Times now offering readers the only multiple days (three-days-a-week) newspaper in Cayman, it brings it a few steps closer to its peak output of a daily paper four years ago in 2020.

That was abruptly halted when the COVID-19 pandemic hit and forced the jurisdiction into lockdown.

Announcing the return to three-days-a-week publishing, publisher and editor Lewis said this also coincides with an expansion of the paper’s distribution network and maintaining the business model of being complimentary in the hands of readers, especially those in the job market.

The paper currently has over 60 distribution points including all the major supermarkets, pharmacies and other high-traffic areas with other outlets under consideration.

In an interview on Radio Cayman’s Business Buzz programme with Anita Khan - coincidentally her final programme - Lewis said the rationale for the relaunched Monday edition of Caymanian Times ties in with the industry standard of having a fresh paper delivered on a Monday morning to start the week.

“The idea is to have the paper available on a Monday morning first thing with the online edition complementing the popular printed edition,” he explained.

“The goal is to provide independent balanced news to the community that they can really afford without us having any agenda,” Lewis added.

The relaunch of the Monday edition of Caymanian Times also coincides with the business shifting more of its back office processes online to further streamline its operations.

However, Mr Lewis has given an assurance that there are no plans to change from the main output of a printed paper supported by an online presence.
