Hey there, all you loyal newsblog followers!
For about the last year and a half, we in the MTPR newsroom have used this blog as a way to give our listeners and other interested parties a place to find our original content online–the full audio, plus text and pictures relevant to the stories.
We did this because we understand the increasing importance the web has on our daily habits as news consumers. Posting our stories to a free WordPress blog gave us the opportunity to provide that content using our available resources.
But, this also has been part of a broader effort to prepare us for the eventual redesign of our website, mtpr.org– a modern upgrade allowing us to post our news content in an even cleaner and more comprehensive way than we have for the blog.
That time has come, and we are so excited for you all to see what this new site can do. From the homepage at mtpr.org, you can see all of our local news content on the left-hand side. In the middle of the page you’ll notice sidebars for our editorial comments as well as for other MTPR programs such as “The Write Question.” On the far right of the page you’ll notice links to podcasts and a calendar of what’s playing on air at that time. Finally, at the top of the screen you’ll see a ‘listen live’ streaming button.
Thank you so much to all of you for sticking with us through this experiment! Here’s to what’s next!!
Uh, one more time, the new website…mtpr.org, just click that blue part and you’ll go there.
