TNA Media-owned daily The New Age postpones launch of its print edition until October 20, according to an announcement on its website on Tuesday.

This decision of postponement follows "an exhaustive review of readiness" exemplified by the newspaper to launch this month, TimesLive.co.za reported yesterday.

"This delay, while unfortunate, is necessary and will help us deliver a newspaper worthy of our potential readers," Vuyo Mvoko, editor-in-chief of the newspaper stated on the news site. The newspaper had promised its readers comprehensive daily coverage of all of South Africa's nine provinces, which Mvoko explains, "has proved harder to put the systems and people in place to deliver on provincial coverage than we originally anticipated."

Providing reasons for the delay, Mvoko stated, "We have also purchased some of the latest editorial software and other technologies, much of it new to the South African scene. These will need to be tested extensively and over a period of time to guarantee our ability to produce consistent quality on a daily basis. We also have to train our staff on the use and management of our new systems. We are confident that once these processes are complete, we can deliver to our readers an aesthetically pleasing, editorially sound and fresh product that will be relevant to their lives and add to the diversity of voices in our country's media."
