The Deseret News has instituted a style change that we hope will make reading just a little bit easier for you, our readers.

Beginning Sunday, all Deseret News sports and news stories will include a dateline at the beginning of the story, which will immediately tell the reader "where" the story happened or "what city" the story is about.

The dateline, we hope, will help readers more easily identify news about their community or communities in which they have interest. In addition, the use of datelines in our online edition will make those stories more easily found through key word searches.

Readers should note that the dateline does not necessarily mean that a reporter wrote the story from that particular location. In this electronic era, news is gathered many ways, only one of which is actually going to the scene.

Hence, the addition of the dateline is designed to help busy readers navigate the paper — in print and online — more easily.
