The Voice Newspaper, the weekly aimed at the black community, is broadening its outlook, according to editor-in-chief Mike Best.

'We are moving away from (specifically) 'black' issues into things like finance and politics,' explained Best. 'We are a national newspaper and want to be treated and respected as that.'

The paper's policy of only printing pictures of black people has been discontinued, he said.

'We want to broaden the outlook and the content. It is a new approach based on the response of the public,' Best said. 'We are interested in anything that is of interest to the African and Caribbean community.'

Subjects may include the effect of Britain's potential adoption of the euro on the value of money sent from the UK to the Caribbean; and education, including the exclusion of black children from schools.

The paper will also be conducting more independent surveys, Best said. The Voice has an ABC of 30,600.
