Tuesday, the University of Virginia's student newspaper officially unveiled the first edition of its biweekly newsmagazine format. The Cavalier Daily announced in January the shift from a daily print publication to what they call a "digital-first newsroom."

The newsmagazine will consist of more feature and investigative stories. Daily reporting and breaking news will be published online.

Editor-in-Chief Kaz Komolafe says there's been positive response to the shift.

"They really liked a lot of the modern elements and they said it looked like in the past before we transitioned. It was very much an old school newspaper and now it has really been brought into the 21st century, so I think that really we have received a lot of positive feedback," said Komolafe.

The Cavalier Daily will be launching their mobile app in the next several weeks. There will also be an official launch party later this month.
