Berita Harian is one of the most popular Malay newspapers nowadays. This newspaper has actually suffered an important change in the past few months. It has been renamed to BH back in July, 2012. Still, besides the name, which has been changed to the initials of the former name of the newspaper, these are few changes in the format or type of content presented by BH.
BH is a daily newspaper, with a tabloid format. The newspaper was first founded in 1957. This newspaper has a Sunday edition, as well, which actually is called BH Ahad. It was launched on July 10, 1960. One of the most interesting facts about BH is that it managed to change throughout the years in such a manner that its popularity has never paled. For instance, in 2008, Berita Harian came with a new impressive look. The trendier compact version of BH was quite well received by readers from all over the country.
BH nowadays presents its stories in a rather provocative manner, stimulating the minds of its readers. So, we can surely say that Berita Herian has evolved from an ordinary daily newspaper, to the modern BH. It currently allows readers to enjoy finding out the latest news in a simple, fast and compact way.
To be able to provide its readers the highest quality information, news and latest facts, Berita Harian has actually made a modification starting with July 1, 2012. This includes changing the Ekonomi section to Bisnes, the pullout Ratu to Famili and Rona to Kembara. In this context, it is important to mention that some changes have been made to the layout, typography and pagination, as well. All these changes aimed to make BH more attractive, interesting and simpler to read for everyone. In the new BH, readers will also find larger size color photographs.
To make the improved newspaper more attractive for young audience, too, BH included sections such as Jejak, Fokus, 5 Soalan and Meoww. A page for cat lovers was also added to the newspaper. Naturally, all these changes aimed to make BH popular among people of all ages. And we can surely say that the ideas were great, as BH is more successful than ever. Even though more than half of century has passed since the moment when BH was first released, the newspaper is still popular.
